Mushaira: An Evening of Urdu Poetry

28 Jun 2024

19:00 - 23:00

The Majestic Bradford

For over three centuries, the mushaira has been a beloved part of the cultural and intellectual life of the sub-continent. Traditionally a forum for poets to share their work, the mushaira is a platform for creativity and self-expression, as well as an opportunity to celebrate and uphold the rich cultural heritage of the Urdu language. 

We are delighted to once again invite you to a quintessential Urdu mushaira, in partnership with the Yorkshire Adabee Forum.  

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Urdu language with an evening of mesmerising poetry, featuring some of the most talented Urdu poets from across the globe. The event includes a delicious dinner with an unforgettable musical performance from Ustad Rafaqat Ali Khan of Sham Chaurasia Gharana. 

This event is not suitable for very young children or babes in arms, who will not be admitted. Please book a ticket for every member of your party. 

Please note this event is in Urdu. 

Due to the nature of this event, no discounts or concessions apply.
