Shubbak Festival Returns in 2015


    • A Window on Contemporary Arab Culture


      The Shubbak team is now planning for its third festival of contemporary Arab culture.


      This next festival will be held across London from 11 – 25 July 2015.

      In 2013, the Shubbak festival attracted 55,000 visitors from London and the Arab world. We showcased 52 events and hosted artists from 16 Arab countries. Download our press release (English / Arabic) for more information.

      Artists are at the centre of our festival. Their imaginations open up new ways for us to understand our world.

      Shubbak is the window to these imaginations.
