FLIGHT TO ABYSSINIA - Khayyal

Sunday 17 November 18.00 – 20.30

Bristol SU, Anson Rooms, Richmond Building, 105 Queens Rd, Bristol BS8 1LN

On November 17th we will be joined by the multi-award winning theatre company Khayaal.

They will be performing a short play that celebrates the story of King Negus, a Christian king of Abyssinia (an empire in modern-day Ethiopia) that provided refuge to early Muslims under persecution in their own land.

We will also be joined by the University’s East African Society who are going to introduce the play with a talk on Islam’s presence in modern-day East Africa, and a Q&A panel will be held after the performance to provide an opportunity to ask the theatre company any questions.

The night’s events will be followed by a FREE full meal provided by Real Habesha Restaurant, serving up Ethiopian classics such as injera, shiro and cabbage (all vegan!). Meat options are also available as well as gluten-free options.
