Christmas party at La Fontaine Centre on 10th Dec. (Manama)
Robin Baratt from Writer's circle is organising a Christmas party. All are welcome.
We hope you are able to attend our BWC Christmas / End of Year Party at the wonderful La Fontaine Centre of Contemporary Arts. There will be a really nice buffet (La Fontaine are renown on the island for their food), and a private recital by Hussan Hujari, who will be playing the oud, a traditional stringed instrument commonly used in North African and the Middle East. Classically trained in guitar and oud, Hussan has been awarded various scholarships including: Music Scholarship, University of Exeter, UK (Inst. of Arab & Islamic Studies, PhD Ethnomusicology); Korean Literature Essay Contest Prize; Monbusho Scholarship, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. Tokyo, Japan; and Achievement Award, Drake University. Iowa, USA. He is fluent in English, Arabic and Japanese!!
Friends, family, partners, spouses, all welcome to this truly special occasion.
Cost per person will be 20BD – juices, teas and coffees also included, but you can purchase alcoholic beverages from La Fontaine separately. Please confirm as soon as you can as I will need to know final numbers, collect money and pay for everything a few days in advance.
Please also feel free to forward this to anyone else that might be interested!
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
