Souk for Syria

Souk for Syria: An exciting cultural and musical fundraiser for the Levantine Relief Network, a grassroots Syrian charity that provides education and aid to displaced Syrians. The Souq will be a magical journey through a traditional Syrian market where Middle Eastern arts, crafts, jewellery, toys and Syrian cuisine will be available. Some of London's finest homegrown independent artists and designers will also be setting up shop and providing the perfect opportunity to pick up unique Christmas presents! Entry is free and all donations from the sellers will go towards funding two streams of the charity's projects. The day will also feature children's activities, including an interactive embroidery workshop, and a live performance from the Syrian kanun player Maya Youssef, who will be accompanied by cellist Barney Morse-Brown and percussionist Ant Romero. Taking place on 17 December, 2016 at Rixh Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
