Time Out Bahrain staff
Alwan 338 Check out the goings on down on Block 338 with this month-long celebration of all things arty being staged by Al Riwaq Art Space. Expect the unexpected in the streets around the gallery with art installations, music and theatre performances and who knows what else. Until April 22, Block 338. www.alriwaqartspace.com.
Yanni live in Bahrain Congratulations if you were one of the lucky ones to get tickets to see Yanni. We hear they sold out in about an hour so here’s hoping it will be a good night. Keep an eye on the Ministry of Culture website for details of returns if there are any. Sat, April 2, Bahrain National Theatre. www.moc.gov.bh.
Anyone for soup? Jack Canfield (author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series) presents: The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. At BD300 the all-dayer may be a bit rich for most pockets but it’s BD60 for Bahraini nationals through a scheme run by Tamkeen. Wed, April 3, 9am-5pm, Gulf Hotel. Call (36 048 699/39 986 580).
Market trading Not sure if these are going to continue during the hotter months so this might be the last chance till autumn to take in the Lagoon shopping fair. You’ll find henna, face painting, street artists and, of course, lots of stalls selling all sorts of goodies. Fri/Sat, April 5/6, Amwaj Lagoon. Call (36 451 527).
Cook Italian The first Saturday of the month means chef Stafano is in the kitchen teaching classes of six to 10 people how to recreate his delish dishes, just like mama used to make. Sat, April 6, Fiamma, Sofitel Bahrain. Call (17 636 414).
