@70: A Celebration of Contemporary Palestinian Culture

@70: Celebration of Contemporary Palestinian Culture, taking place from 14-20 May, is a week-long festival of theatre, dance, films and talks commemorating the Palestinian experience of dispossession and loss of a homeland.

Every year on 15 May, Palestinians around the world, numbering about 12.4 million, mark the Nakba. Three artists from Gaza - Ahmed Masoud, Ahmed Najar and Khalid Ziyada - have worked closely with Amnesty International UK, the Hoping Foundation, Amos Trust, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Al Zaytouna Dance Theatre to bring together this creative response to decades of injustice.

Double Bill tickets are available on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Please select the number of tickets you require for the earlier event on your chosen evening; once you have this in your basket, the second event will appear as a suggested addition. The double bill discount will be applied at checkout.
