The Doha Cultural Festival

There's a lot on over the next two weeks or so, with the Doha Cultural festival taking place, but as usual information seems hard to come by. The Gulf Times has a schedule out in today's issue, and you should also be able to get information from The National Council for Culture Arts and Heritage, although I am currently having problems loading it.

The Heritage Village will, of course, be opened, and a cultural cafe at the Ritz Carlton. Traditional dancing and a falconry and horse display will be held at the grounds near Merkhiya roundabout tomorrow at 4.00 pm, followed by "Desert tunes on the Rabbah,' which will then be held daily until 4th March. On Sunday 24th a photography exhibition will open at the Ritz Carlton, and will remain open until the end of the festival, and the fiction film festival will feature three films daily at the Mall Cinema. Other events include poetry, lectures, plays and tonight's laser display over the bay - starting at 6pm and visible from the Corniche.
