Community Celebration Food Music/Dance/Theatre

Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of cultural expression at the Refugee Festival Scotland! From mesmerising dance performances by Nancy Ahmar, rooted in Bellydance and Latin dance, to the soul-stirring poetry of Noon Salah Eldin, exploring themes of migration and motherhood, our event celebrates diversity, empowerment, and resilience.

Join us for a captivating showcase of artistic talent, featuring singer Malay’s evocative melodies and Katrina of the Orient’s boundary-pushing drag performances. DJ 3MR will keep the energy high with his vibrant beats, ensuring a night of joy and connection. Plus, indulge in Sumag’s delectable plant-based cuisine, inspired by Iraqi and SWANA flavours, during the break. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the transformative power of art and community!
