Richard Boyd Barret is among this year’s guests after he went viral last year for speaking out on the importance of supporting Palestinians in their struggle as Ukrainians in their war. Richard had publically spoken on the Palestinian struggle and the occupation crimes many times.

Richard is among many other famous figures that have publically supported Palestine before, such as the well-known Kuwaiti artist Hamood Alkhuder, Palestinian artist Kifah Zreiki, the famous rappers Lowkey andWaheeb Nasan, and the Dabkeh band MEK – Who are flying to London from Jaffa.




The Palestine Festival aims to create and grow the sense of belonging the next generations of Arabs and Palestinian have for Palestine. And with that in mind, the Festival will have a special educational and entertaining corner for children, to show and teach them more about the Holy Mosque and the Aqsa Mosque. (

The Festival has other guests in mind too, as there will be traditional clothes (Thobes) booths, traditional food booths served by Palestinian Women aiming to raise donations for Palestine, and more.

The head of the PFB, Zaher Birawi, highlighted the importance of such festivals to raise awareness of the Palestinian struggle as well as to preserve their heritage and culture.
