The Bahrain National Museum witnessed the launch of the 14th edition of the Bahrain Summer Festival yesterday. The festival, at the Bahrain National Museum, the Art Centre and the Cultural Hall, will run until the end of this month.
“Activities are picking up in Bahrain despite the challenges, and this festival would act as a platform for spreading joy and bringing together all of Bahrain under one goal, which is culture,” said Shaikha Mai. The audience yesterday was treated to a performance by the creative Bahraini trio Mohammed Al-Najjar, Haya Al-Hamad and Lian Al-Hamad, who played international music pieces on their pianos. Today, “Brainiac Remixed”, a world-famous and most outrageous live science show, takes the stage at the Cultural Hall today.
The shows continue for three successive days, on 13 and 14 July at 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Besides, the Heritage Commission of the Saudi Ministry of Culture will present a number of workshops at the Arts Centre to introduce the famous handicrafts in Saudi Arabia.
It will present other activities, such as the Little Explorer Initiative, which seeks awareness of the importance of antiquities, protecting and celebrating them, and the Noqush Project for reviving the Saudi national heritage represented by rock arts and inscriptions.
The festival will continue until July 31, 2022, daily from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
