London’s largest contemporary Arabic cultural festival is landing right on our doorstep…

We’re elated to announce that the Shubbak Festival will be taking over the market this July! Famed for connecting London audiences with the best contemporary Arab culture, the organisation has attracted over 50,000 visitors in more than 40 venues at their last festival alone!

Shubbak will be taking over 5 spots throughout market lane for 3 days of fun. Working with London based and international art institutions, many participants travel over the world to take part in the biennial event. You can expect visual arts, film, music, theatre, dance & literature as the artists bring the town to life through creativity and interactions with market shoppers & traders.

Shepherd’s Bush Market will see a strong focus on music, storytelling and live art being created with textiles sourced from the market as the medium, as artists explore our vibrant town and it’s rich multicultural history.

Running from 13 – 15th July,  be sure to join us for 3 incredible days of creative interventions.
