Thanks to City Living Local Life we have discovered the most wonderful festival in it's fifth year on our doorstep.  Click here for full details.

This festival shines a light on the very best in contemporary Middle Eastern and North African arts and culture.  All united in a desire to experience artistic excellence and thought-provoking work, which challenges stereotypes of this region of the world and its peoples, through cultural expression.

Particularly exciting looks to be the Arab science fiction: From imagination to innovation at the IMAX. Click here.  Science Fiction is the ultimate bridge between science and the arts so could exploring this symbiotic relationship enable the next generation to envision an alternative future of the Middle East?

... and for anyone with children there is a cookery workshop on Sunday 9th November Click here.
