The Bahrain Summer Festival returns this month, announcing a line-up of family-friendly events across the island kingdom from the 7th July to the 7th August.


The Bahrain Summer Festival is back and returning for its 9th year this month. This year the family-friendly festival features a thrilling line up of top regional and international live music, theatrical performances and a wide range of creative workshops. From Arabic music performances by The Umm Kulthum Troupe to funky French Latino artist El Gato Negro, the festival brings multi-cultural entertainment to the region and welcomes locals, expats and tourists alike.


This year the festival will also be celebrating Bahrain’s unique millennia-old history and heritage. In homage to this, last year’s popular ‘Nakhool’ tent will be positioned at the magnificent Bahrain Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back over 4000 years. The tent will be open from 4.30 – 9.30 pm each day and feature a wide range of fun and educational activities for children of all ages, from the Little Artist’s Exhibition to Arabic calligraphy workshops. Kids can also take part in the Opening Operetta, a musical collaboration with the Bahrain Musical Institute that honours Bahraini and Arabic heritage through music.


The line-up of events will take place across the kingdom in different locations including the Cultural Hall, Bahrain Site Museum and the Bahrain National Museum. The Cultural Hall will host the majority of workshops and concerts. Visitors to the island can head here to try their hand at origami or improvisation, whilst the Bahrain National Museum will be the impressive setting for an Egyptian movie night. Most of the events are free to the public, although registration is recommended for some of the workshops. Events will be run in both English and Arabic, encouraging all locals, tourists and expats to get together and join in the fun! For more information:

Through my work as Tourism Ambassador for Tourism Malaysia, I have had a lot of dealings with Hills Balfour and always find them to be efficient and creative in their approach. Their professionalism is always apparent and they have no difficulty in securing top level media for press events and conferences. I myself have received many quality media interview requests through Hills Balfour, which has not only increased the positive publicity for my country, but also raised my personal profile in the UK.

What I have done…
I have had the chance to travel a lot during my childhood, which has led to my insatiable travel bug. After completing a BA in International Media and Communications at the University of Nottingham, I moved to London to start an MA in Tourism, Environment and Development at King’s College London. During my studies I worked with a small travel agency and a travel tech start-up, which introduced me to the travel industry and consequently my passion. For my thesis research I spent two months in Iguazu, at the Argentinian National Park, writing a report on the tourism landscape and participatory tourism development.
