The following events make up the BBC Arabic Festival week. Tickets are free and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Visit the individual listings for more details about each one.
You can apply for tickets to as many sessions as you like.
Tickets are strictly non-transferable. Photographic proof of ID must be shown. If you cannot provide this proof you will be refused entry. If your photo ID does not match the name on the ticket you will not be admitted. If you request two tickets because you are taking a guest along, that person will only be allowed in if they are accompanied by you.
Please take a look at our FAQ to see what type of photo ID is acceptable.
Admission to these screenings is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.
