The first is the Arabic Film Festival in London from 31st October. Look right through all the links to find the 1 or 2 minute trailers. The names of the films can be worked at for learning a bit more vocab. This is the first festival of its kind in London.
The second is the unpteenth Aldeburgh Poetry Festival on the Suffolk coast. Very bleak and bracing. There is a festival blog. It will be written by Anthony Wilson, so there's a way of being there without moving a muscle.
I deleted the first version of this post by accident, so this is my second go at it.
