A few of our favourite things to do this weekend
We’re getting into the swing of Ramadan, mamas (don’t forget to check out our list of places that are open during the day), and we’ve got everything you need to check out over the weekend. Head indoors to Dubai Sports World to burn off some steam with the minis or learn about the holy festival with an iftar led by the SMCCU. We’ve also got plenty of shopping events to satisfy your soul…
The Courtyard Playhouse is putting on a theatrical show for mamas and bubs this weekend.

The awesome Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding is definitely somewhere you want to be headed this Ramadan.
