The Wedding Hall in Fujairah’s new Concorde Hotel was an ideal venue yesterday (5 December 2010) for showcasing a festival of Emirati Heritage.
The spacious hall was home to many different cultural and heritage groups such as the Fujairah Museum and the Fujairah Welfare Society who displayed some of their activities.
The event was sponsored by the Architectural Heritage Society of the UAE.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Sharqi, the Crown Prince of Fujairah, visited the Concorde Hotel at 5pm to share in a formal occasion of entertainment and speechmaking before he inspected the various heritage booths.
