7tj Doha Cultural Festival

The 7th Doha Cultural Festival will be starting this week on Thursday 26th February, and will be opened by the Emir at the Sheraton Hotel. The opening will feature an operetta, Qatar, Land of Love and Peace (which it actually is in comparison to some of the neighboring countries!), a parade of dhows and fireworks on the Corniche.

The festival will feature a range of events, including folk shows, calligraphy, children's cinema, flamenco and a desert love exhibition (?!?)

The festival has a beautifully designed website (white doves fly across the background of Doha's bay). Unfortunately, especially after considering all the effort that has obviously gone into the website, many of the links don't work, but you can find the full schedule on DohaFestival.net.
