Festival in the Park – day one
28 February 2019 @ 10.00 am - 9.00 pmFree
Two days of family-friendly entertainment as part of the Abu Dhabi festival. There’s an all-day craft market, plus kids entertainment morning and afternoon, afternoon sessions of Korean craft workshops with the Korean Cultural Centre, and more adult stuff in the evening. Day one kicks off at 10am with two shows – one in English and one in Arabic – by the rather fine Ministry of Science (science-related tricks and fun); in the afternoon there’s a Book Reading Club with Emirati authors. Later there’s a Marching Drums and Drumming Workshop followed by a performance by the students of the Elite Music Institute. The evening has a screening of Amal’s Cloud, a short directed by Rawia Abdullah, and Arabic stand-up from Ali Al Sayed and friends.
