Shubbak Festival 2017London's largest biennial festival of Arab culture, the 16-day Shubbak Festival encompasses 60 events, from dance and performance to films and visual arts. Celebrating the best in contemporary culture from across the Arabic world, events take place at some of London's best fringe theatres including the Young Vic, Arcola Theatre, Bush Theatre and Rich Mix and ties in with the Eid Festival presenting three hours of music. Shubbak (the Arabic word for 'window') gives audiences a chance to discover new talent from the Arab world whether that's through film premieres at the Barbican, puppetry in Shepherd's Bush or a performance in one of Dalston's most hidden spaces.
