I am thrilled to announce that the George Town Festival is coming our way as our beloved George Town celebrates its 2nd anniversary as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 7th July 2010. We will see a month-long celebration featuring over 80 programs starting on July 1st.
The George Town Festival will present a variety of theatre, music, dance, film, arts, food, fashion, photography, inspirational talks and visual spectacles on the streets. Exciting programmes include a heritage shophouse trail, everyone’s favorite Nyonya theatre - “Emily of Emerald Hill”, spectacular Chinese Opera by Ghaffar Pourazar, screening of movies shot in Penang, and so on.
George Town will be the stage for different artistic communities from local and international schools, cultural groups, and professional performers.
If you are planning on a holiday in July, come join us in Penang for this memorable occasion. The George Town Festival 2010 promises you a fiesta of ARTS and HERITAGE!
