Yalda Night at Asia House PastWednesday, Dec 2, 2015 ,
Join the Iran Heritage Foundation for our final event this year at an evening focused on Shab-e Yalda. Yalda is celebrated on the eve of the winter solstice, marking the turning point at which the days once again start to get longer, symbolizing the triumph of light over darkness. This will be a social evening, with a brief presentation on the history and significance of Yalda as well as poetry readings by Narguess Farzad (SOAS) and Prof. Alan Williams (Manchester University), followed by a reception with drinks and traditional nibbles.
