A night of music, poetry and stalls in solidarity with Palestine and in support of Medical Aid for Palestinians

The Arab British Centre, Arts Canteen and Shubbak Festival are joined by Zaytoun CIC and Saqi Books to invite you to Gather For Gaza.

We have been watching with horror and broken hearts the events unfolding in Gaza. As organisations dedicated to platforming the arts, heritage and cultures of the Arab world and beyond, we are joining forces to present an evening of music, poetry, a healing circle and stalls in solidarity with Palestine.

At this painful time we look to art and the coming together of all communities for solidarity, action, grieving and healing.

All ticket sales will be donated to Medical Aid for Palestinians who are delivering essential services on the ground. We'll be announcing more acts over the coming days but please buy your tickets now and join us on Thursday 26 October at the beautiful Grand Junction.
