This Sunday 17th December is our last event of the year before we close for a couple of weeks over the holiday period. On this Sunday we have an evening that will be a little different from the usual:-

Walthamstow Folk Proudly Present a Special evening:

Awakening Love

The Mystical poetry of Sufi mystics Rumi and Hafez in Dari / Farsi and English with musical accompaniment.

Rumi and Hafez were poets in 13th and 14th century Persia (now Iran) and followers of the Islamic mystical tradition of Sufism.

The power and wisdom of their work has endured for nearly 800 years and is as relevant and important now as it ever has been. Perhaps even more so.

In this special evening from Walthamstow Folk Karim Haidari and Evlynn Sharp present entirely new translations of Rumi and Hafez's mystical poetry set to music by Melanie Reinhart.

It promises to be an unforgettable evening that might just change your life...

We reopen on 7th January with Wizz Jones, full details of next years early programme is at
