7. A Syrian Feast

A Syrian Feast - Friday 21 October 2022

Following three sell-out evenings in 2019 and 2021, the Syrian Feast returns to The Harlequin Theatre this autumn for one night only.

The Syrian Feasts are cooked by Syrian families resettled into the area to give local people a flavour of the delicious Syrian cusine.

Tickets cost £20 per person and include delicious vegetarian and meat dishes, a range of meze and baclava.

A Syrian Feast recipe book

A recipe book of Syrian cuisine, A Syrian Feast, featuring 17 easy-to-follow recipes generously shared from the homes of resettled families in the area is available to buy.

The recipes are reflective of their heritage and wonderful cuisine and use fresh or easily adapted ingredients like aubergine, lemon, tomatoes, vine leaves, peppers and herbs, and commonly used utensils like cups and mugs for measurement. Recipes include starters, soups, snacks, main meals and desserts.

Copies of A Syrian Feast can be purchased for £5 from The Harlequin Theatre box office.

Refugee support

Proceeds from the Syrian Feast events and the book sales will go towards future projects to help increase skills, work experience and job opportunities for the local Syrian community. The support enables the families to adjust to their new lives in the UK, as well as help them integrate successfully into the community and live independent lives.
