On June 19, 1961, Kuwait gained independence, putting an end to the Anglo-Kuwaiti Agreement of 1899. This was followed by a decree on May 18, 1961 to conjoin the National Day and the ascension of the Amir celebration into one event commemorated every year on February 25th. On the occasion of Kuwait’s National and Liberation Day holiday, the Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Cultural Center (ASCC) is thrilled to celebrate this special occasion with a wonderful variety of entertaining events, shows and fun and educational activities.
