From a family festival near December 16 Highway to fireworks over Water Garden City, there are plenty of things to do in Bahrain this National Day.

And now the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities has announced a month-long programme of music and arts events.

Throughout the month of December there will be musical performances, art workshops and exhibitions for you to enjoy for free.

Dar Al Muharraq is set to host two evenings of live Bahraini musical performances on December 7 and December 21, both of which will kick off at 8pm.

You’ll be kept entertained by Fjiri music performed by Dar Shabab Al Hidd and Ismaeel Dawas Band respectively.

Then, on December 14 and December 28, Dar Al Riffa will also host two concerts, featuring the music of Dar Shabab Al Riffa and Dar Al Riffa Al Ouda. That event will also kick off at 8pm.

Bahrain National Theatre will host a musical performance on December 20 that will explore Bahrain’s history, its origins and people up until the modern day from 8pm.

If art is more your thing than music, there’s plenty of events for you to head to.

From 7pm on December 15 until 7am the next day, the Bahrain National Museum will be open for Manama Doesn’t Sleep.

The 12-hour long celebration will have music and dance shows, literary talks, plus fine art exhibitions for you to check out.

From December 3 until December 10, you can check out a photography pop-up exhibition that is set to be a visual definition of what it means to be a successful Bahraini woman at the Art Centre in Manama.

If all this artwork is inspiring you, you can get involved at one of the workshops this month too.

On December 18, Ali AlBazzaz will be hosting an collage workshop on Arabic lettering from 5pm at the Art Centre.

And on December 17, Hala Mohammed Al Khalifa will host a workshop for children inspired by jasmine flowers at the Pearling Path Squares in Muharraq from 10am.
