Come along (little ones are welcomed!) to meet the family health care professionals and you’ll most probably benefit from specialised breastfeeding information. Don’t hesitate to ask questions or raise your concerns and enjoy the (free!) refreshments – perfect way to start off the day!

If you’re in for a unique opera experience, we’ve got just the one for you! Bring the fam over for an opera performance without human voice but an orchestra which provides the pulse that makes an opera breathe. The greatest composers have always written as well for instruments as for voices. In the process they have created magnificent orchestral pieces that have taken on a life of their own and this collection brings together Italian Opera’s most beautiful. Who says weekday evenings can’t be classy?
When: Monday, 5 September (8pm)
Where: Dubai Opera
How much: From AED 300, get your tickets here
