This Weekend In Lahore: Something Old Something New
Can you believe that we’re halfway through August already? Time definitely flies when you’re having fun, and that’s what this weekend in Lahore is all about: FUN. As per custom, C+G has your weekend sorted for you (I mean it’s mostly me who does the grunt work). If you were thinking of binging on the latest season of your favorite show, save that for the weekdays. I’ve put together a list of must-do activities, these events are definitely not to be missed this weekend in Lahore. Let’s jump into it:
NAWAAN AYA AEN SOHNYA!
Olomopolo Media sets the stage for all the aspiring artists to audition for an upcoming project to be done exclusively with new artists. If you’ve got a knack for acting, singing, dancing and making up stories,this is the call for you. No experience necessary, just hit them with your best shot. The auditions are open to all, so don’t forget to ask Grandma if she wants in.
P.S. Brush up on your Shakespearean Monologues!
HAR FUN EID POP UP
If you’re a trash person like me, you’re probably totally unprepared for Eid. With barely a week to go, there’s no time like the present to get a move on it. Luckily, Har Fun is setting(popping) shop at Mocca for a two-day Eid Exhibition which you definitely do not want to miss. You’ll find me there, clutching on to the pretty pastel solid seperates. God Speed.
P.S. Don’t forget to bring cash.
Sweet Tooth invites you to a fun filled event to tickle your funny bone. With a poetry competition, speeches and a play, you’ll be spoilt rotten. They are going to be spitting rhymes, waging wars and making you laugh till your jaws ache. Pair all of that with Lahore’s most famous street eats, weekends in Lahore don’t get any better than that. Do not miss out.
P.S. This is definitely one for the squad, let your friends know.
SOLO EXHIBITION: KACHA GOSHT
Kacha Gosht will be Amra Khan’s first solo show at O Art Space. For those of you unfamiliar with her work, it explores the theme of struggle between the intellect and the soul with the body as the battlefield. Khan started off as an oil painter, but more recently her work has taken on a three dimensional twist. For serious collectors, she is one to watch.
P.S. Keep an eye out for the element of role-play within her work.
TINY TALES: MATARIA AUR PATARIA
I bet you thought I forgot about the kids this week. You thought wrong, clearly. Hey parents! help your child develop a life-long relationship with Urdu literature why dontcha! British Council Pakistan and Story Kit have partnered up for the Tiny Tales Segment. Sign up now and prepare for a fun little family afternoon this weekend in Lahore.
P.S. Walk-ins are a no-no, don’t forget to register.
There you have it folks, your C+G weekend in Lahore, crafted with tender loving and care. Now go ahead and make it count.
