Persian Rumi Night

A highly exclusive Persian night in a private setting Remembering Rumi’s 750st! With Grandmaster of Storytelling Ashley Ramsden.

About the Event

This is an extraordinary opportunity you do not want to miss!

Every year, Ashley Ramsden comes to DISC in The Netherlands and treats us to a series of special Persian Rumi Nights at a beautiful private home, right in the city centre of The Hague. It is always as stepping into Aladdin’s cave or Sherazade’s private quarters; The magic is all around!

This years Persian Rumi Night we are honouring Rumi’s 750 year’s passing by creating some Sweet Persian Sensations! An exclusive and intimate evening, where you will step into the world of Persian delights, take your black chai with cardamon tea, smell the jasmine and join Ashley on a journey through the tempting tales of the renowned Sufi teacher Rumi and get inspired by his wisdom, wit and tenderness.

Join us on this exclusive and intimate evening at a new and magical location, as always right in the city centre and be in awe of the sparkling lights all around you and the mesmerising music of Leonie Roessler. (now she is an exciting Sound Artist who – together with Ashley – will be creating a synergy of sound and word in the spirit of Rumi)

BTW: You can also join the Rumi Course during the day. Why not make it into a full Rumi Day! Check it out HERE 


For many years, Ashley has been coming to The Netherlands to bring us the beauty of Rumi’s words. A long standing DISC tradition continues and we are excited that you are joining in.
