Rumi Festival. Music, Word, Art and Dance

This summer the Beshara School at Chisholme is looking forward to hosting the Rumi Festival, 2–4 August, which looks to be one of the biggest public events of its history. The Festival is a celebration of the incomparable life, work and legacy of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi, whose message of universal love, service and following has had a transformative effect on countless lives throughout the world.

The Festival Programme contains a rich mix of talks, participatory events, poetry, art and dance, kicking off with a solo concert from Kudsi Erguner, master of the Turkish Ney, on the Friday evening. The programme goes on to encompass talks and discussions about Rumi and his influence today with Andrew Harvey, Alan Williams, Roderick Grierson, Emily Young and others; a Whirling Dervish Sema from Istanbul; installation art from Ismail Acar; theatre, dance and art inspired by Rumi’s work and much more.

The programme is evolving daily; please check the website www.rumifestival.org regularly or sign up to the twitter feed (https://twitter.com/@rumifest) for news as it comes in.

This festival is open to all – whether familiar with Rumi’s immense presence or completely new to his generosity.

Rumi’s compass is vast, horizonless. Who can see where his skirt ends? In this spirit we would like to encourage all who receive this email to share it as widely as possible among friends, networks and even with that apparent stranger on the train.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
