Moroccan festival in London next june
Morocco-UK, Local, 5/21/2003
A Moroccan week-long festival will be held next June in London under the theme "Morocco Land of Wonder," in what is considered the most important Moroccan tourism and cultural event ever organized in the United Kingdom.
The Moroccan national office of tourism (ONMT) in London in collaboration with Royal Air Maroc, Westminster's authorities, and other Moroccan and UK bodies will launch an important promotional campaign to publicize Morocco's tourism and cultural assets to British public.
Covent Garden's two piazzas at the heart of London, that are highly visited by national and international tourists, will be turned into a Moroccan square with tents and stands where craftsmen, acrobats, music groups, artists, and epicures will inform thousands of British and foreigners about Moroccan products.
The Moroccan week will start by a prestigious gala diner that will raise funds for charity works of the British Moroccan Society, and a fashion show tracing back the history of Moroccan traditional clothes from the 7th century.
Several Moroccan music groups will take part in the festival and sacred music concerts are scheduled in the cathedral of Saint Paul in Covent Garden to highlight the characteristics of Morocco as a tolerant country with diversified religious chants.
Tents of Moroccan craftsmen will be turned to real workshops that will allow visitors to discover the skills of Moroccan craftsmen who will be manually making various items.
This will be an opportunity for visitors to see the making of traditional works in several realms, particularly leather, pottery, wood-runner, ceramics, tapestry work and copper work.
This prestigious event will re-launch the destination of Morocco after a stagnation period that mainly resulted from 11/9 events and war on Iraq, said ONMT's delegate to the United Kingdom, Ali El Kasmi.
