Travelling Tales

Join us during the last weekend of half term and Southbank Centre’s London Literature Festival for an exciting afternoon of performance, literature and spoken word on the Clore Ballroom.


‘Queen of the Qanun’ Maya Youssef will perform The Seven Gates of Damascus, a participatory musical theatre piece which will take you for a magical through distant lands. Inspired by the journeys taken by Syrian children looking for a new place to call home, the universal themes of travel, mystery and belonging resonate with all young audiences. Whether you’ve heard a qanun before or not, The Seven Gates of Damascus will leave you with a sense of wonder, empathy and magic.


In between these performances, the collective Literary Natives will keep your little ones entertained with riveting stories of adventure, exploration and discovery.


Counterpoints Arts believes in the power of shifting how we see displacement and migration through the arts. Our curation of Travelling Tales is part of our longstanding collaboration with Southbank Centre in using the arts as a vehicle for social change.
