The Rubaiyat and Rumi on the Scottish Borders, August 2nd – 4th 2013
Charles Mugleston has alerted us to the Beshara School Rumi Festival being held 2-4 August this year at a location on the Scottish Borders. He will be performing Edward FitzGerald Ruba’iya’t of Omar Khayyam in a yurt as part of the Festival. The event takes place at the Chisholme Estate near Hawick. Those interested can find out more at www.rumifestival.org .
Charles has also drawn our attention to the book LOVE IS ALL by Professor Talat Sait Halman about the famous poet Rumi. It is available from www.bkg.com.tr. Apparently this book contains a glowing reference to EFG and The Ruba’iya’t.
There is more about Charles Mugleston and his interest in the Rubaiyat in earlier post – see http://omarkhayyamrubaiyat.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/new-suffolk-based-website-promoting-the-genius-of-efg/.
