Often described as the Romeo and Juliet of the East, Layla Majnun is a powerful and enduring tale of love and separation. Now re-imagined into a solo performance featuring Farsi scholar and storyteller, Ustaadh Feraidoon Mojadedi, the show is created by a team of diverse artists from Western Australia and directed by James Berlyn.

Showcasing poems by Rumi and other poets, this hour-long performance integrates traditional Persian storytelling with contemporary visual projections and original music, bringing this tale to the 21st Century.

Each night, from 6:30pm onwards we will have entertainment and activities for all ages, as well as an exhibition by Muslim artists and food trucks serving halal food. A prayer room is also accessible to everyone and this is an alcohol free event.
