The Bradford Literature Festival is delighted to host the 5th International Yorkshire Adabee Forum Mushaira, an evening of poetry and culture

Traditionally a mushaira was a symposium where poets gathered to share their work. In contemporary Pakistan and North India, they remain an integral part of creative culture, acting as forums for free self-expression. Here in the UK they also offer an opportunity to preserve traditional cultural practices, language and heritage.

Featuring performers from across the globe including those from Karachi, the US, Lahore and beyond, this will be a memorable evening of beautiful verse and entrancing music.
