In Al Khor, cultural performance, traditional and musical shows by Indian, Bangladeshi and Nepalese nationals by the Al Khor community teams will entertain people at the Al Khor – Barwa Workers Recreation Complex

Qatar Balloon Festival 2019 | Expectations rise high for historic Qatar Balloon Festival

Qatar Balloon Festival 2019 | Expectations rise high for historic Qatar Balloon Festival

DOHA: 33 colourful hot air balloons, in various shapes and different sizes, from all across the globe will dot the skies over Aspire Park on 7th December to set the stage for the country’s first 12-day Qatar Balloon Festival 2019.

This exciting historic first-ever unique fest being held from 7 to 18 December will probably be etched in the memories of Qatari citizens, residents, and visitors for a long time to come.

Apart from the fascinating sight of hot air balloons filling the skies, a number of food trucks, fairground rides, and many more exciting and entertaining events will line up around the Aspire Park for the fun-filled fest.

And according to the organisers these exciting balloon happenings will make the Qatar Balloon Festival most enjoyable for one and all:

Sunrise Balloon Flights

The surreal scene of a group of Hot Air Balloons taking off and coloring the skies at sunrise is unforgettable. The balloons will start taking off and fly with the wind for a period of 45 to 60 minutes and then land where the retrieve vehicles will collect the balloons, the crew, and any guests onboard.

Tethered Balloon Fights

At designated parks a group of balloons tied to the ground by ropes will be providing a balloon ride experience to the public. The scene of the colorful balloons will be a fantastic opportunity to take photographs of the memorable experience.

Late Afternoon Balloon Flights

A couple of hours before sunset (weather permitting) the Hot Air Balloons will be lifting off together to colour the skies. This would be a perfect opportunity to those that can’t get up with the crack of dawn to see the mass balloons flying in the air.

Nightglow

As the darkness sets, the Hot Air Balloons are inflated and start to light up in tune with the music. This spectacular scene must be experienced on sight as no video or description will do it justice! Read more…

The Qatar Balloon Festival 2019 has been scheduled to coincide with other major events in the country as part of the 18th December Qatar National Day celebrations.

Last chance to enjoy Summer Fun activities at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA Qatar)

The Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) launched a series of engaging workshops and activities dedicated to families and art enthusiasts for July and August. Taking inspiration from the museum’s collection, which covers 1400 years of history and a wide variety of materials and forms, the activities include a wide selection of art and calligraphy workshops as well as daily in-depth guided tours of the museum.

Running until the end of August, MIA Qatar presents over 35 courses developed by the Art and Calligraphy team to cater to all age groups. The exciting calendar of workshops includes courses of calligraphy in Kufic, Ruq’ah, Naskh, Nasta’liq or Diwani scripts and art workshops exploring acrylic or glass painting, drawing, geometry, clay sculpting and much more.

Every day during the month of August, MIA visitors also have the opportunity to explore the museum’s collection accompanied by a member of the team of Museum Guides.  In addition to the regular afternoon tours, available all-year-round at 2 pm, this summer visitors will also be able to enjoy an in-depth look at specific objects during the new Islamic Art in Focus short tours, taking place every morning at 10 am and again at 12 pm.

The last in the series of ‘Aladdin’ themed summer camps will run on 21st August for children aged 6 – 12 years old.  Inspired by the cartoon, children will make carpets and jewellery, hunt for Aladdin’s treasure in the museum and enjoy the original Disney cartoon, of course.  Places are limited so booking is essential.

The Summer Fun programme has been developed by MIA education department as part of the museum’s extensive learning programme, offering visitors of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to participate in a wide range of events, activities, research and learning opportunities designed for schools, families, adult and specialist audiences.

Popular comedian regales the audience

Popular comedian regales the audience – By Entertainment Editor

The Al Mayassa Theater at Qatar National Convention Centre was filled with peals of laughter on Thursday night (13th June), as popular comedian Zakir Khan regaled the packed hall with his inimitable sense of humour.

The Indore born and raised stand-up comic related tales of his humble childhood, teenage years and love forlorn relationship with a city-bred, educated rich maiden.

Interconnecting the clashes and crushes of his rustic bringing up with the sophistication of his socialite girlfriend, Zakir drew out humour from both comic and tragic instances that played out during their ultimately failed relationship.

Revealing hilarious ‘inner secrets’ of the universally accepted only-boys-out-get-togethers and comparing it with how and what girls discuss during their meets, Zakir had the audience in splits as they easily related with real-life situations that reflected their own lives.

Taking the glued listeners on a rib-tickling ticketless train journey from his village bound home-town to the capital of India was an exhilarating experience interspersed with various comic tracks and funny anecdotes.

Zakir who started out as a writer scripting radio shows and poem in chaste Hindi/Urdu lingo proved the reason for the rise of his popularity by winning Comedy Central’s India’s third best stand-up comedian competition in 2012.

Zakir quipped Hindi idioms and couplets that have gained him the popular title of “Sakht launda”, (a guy with immense self-control) borrowed from his now famous punch line of the same name.

By the end of the show, as Zakir acknowledge the standing ovation,  one realized why he has over  three million subscribers on YouTube and is rated as one of India’s biggest stand-up comic in recent times.,

In contrast, the opening surprise act by Nishant Suri, an upcoming young comedian whose claim to fame is winning the prestigious Comicstaan, a popular comedy competition brought in a breath of fresh and infectious comedy.

Nishant who spoke mostly in Hinglish (a mix of English and Hindi) narrated many personal experiences and the instances of constantly being compared to his studious engineering graduated elder brother touched a relatable chord of sibling rivalry among many in the audience.

The programme named ‘Desi Comedy Nights’ was organised by Millennium Entertainment who have previously brought other famous Indian comedians to Qatar and one hopes will continue to entertain and enthrall South Asian expats here with many more such engaging shows.
