The programme will present lectures, forums, traditional competitions and a number of tents including Al Akass, Al Nawakhda, Al Durzi, Al Khraz and Al Meqnas.   

The Fereej Aspire event is being organised in partnership with Vodafone Qatar and Sports Corner, and will be open daily from 9:30pm until midnight. The event will run until the 19th of Ramadan.
