We are delighted to announce the dates of this year’s festival. A ten day spectacular programme is now planned to launch Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival (LAAF) as Britain’s first independent annual festival of its kind.

The 2009 Arabic Weekender, presented by LAAF, was enjoyed by over 25,000 people. Packing the full flavour of the festival the programme included music, dance, literature, film, food and family activities. The events were staged across the city of Liverpool at venues including the Bluecoat, FACT, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and National Museums Liverpool.
