New sound and light show to launch at Shaikh Salman bin Ahmed Al Fateh Fort

The sound and light show at Qal’at al-Bahrain is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the winter season - and the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) has revealed plans for another version in Riffa.

A new show, focusing on the history of the Al Khalifa family in Bahrain, is set to open at the Shaikh Salman bin Ahmed Al Fateh Fort by the end of the year.

Riffa Fort, as it is also known, was built by Sheikh Salman bin Ahmed Al Fateh Al Khalifa in 1812, and was also the birthplace of Sheikh Isa bin Ali Al Khalifa.

The new show will offer up a comprehensive history of the ruling family in Bahrain.

No further details have been revealed about the launch of the new show, but it is expected to follow a similar schedule to the one at Bahrain Fort, which lasts an hour and is available in English and Arabic.

Shaikha Mai bint Mohammed Al Khalifa, BACA’s president, revealed the plans in a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Mubarak Al Khalifa.
