The Majestic Petra Festival, a three-day long festival that hosts artists, actors, historians and other cultural personalities will be held in Petra in April 2007. The festival is to promote and strengthen the UK-Arab relations, so we have to point out that official support for this event came from Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and British Prime Minister.
The festival will include film, theatre, opera, literary and other arts elements. In fact, the festival's program embodies live Arabic musical performance, screening of contemporary Palestinian films and open discussions of main political and inter-cultural issues, such war in Iraq and terrorism; these are only a minimal part of the events the festival will offer.
Nobel laureates, Arab and British thinkers, Jordanian writers and poets will have their presence in Petra; confirmed speakers list includes Sir V.S Naipaul, Khaled al Karaki, Hanan al Shaykh, Reza Aslan, Vikram Seth and many others.
Tickets information is available on the official site, and for those who live in Jordan the entrance is free.
