Palestine in the Lanes

Journey through the traditional and contemporary culture of Palestine.

Join in our free workshops for children and adults.

Learn to make Palestinian sweets and salad, write your name in Arabic, try your hand at cross-stitch embroidery, discover songs from Jerusalem and rap from Gaza, or learn to dance some Dabke steps.

Listen to folk tales old and new. Browse stalls of colourful ceramics from Hebron, olive wood carvings from Bethlehem, olive oil from Jordan Valley and dates from Jericho.

The Present, the compelling 2021 BAFTA short film winner from Palestinian British Director Farah Nabulsi, will be shown at 11.30am and 1.30 and 3pm.

And we’re delighted to announce that the Head of the Palestinian Mission to the UK, His Excellency Dr Husam Zomlot, will be joining us on the day, and will be speaking immediately after the final screening of The Present at about 3.30pm.

Nay Master FARIS ISHAQ will play at 12 and 2pm.
