“These are a few of our favourite things” coming up this week

With two fabulous musicals coming to Dubai, plus Cirque Le Noir, and family shopping markets, there is plenty going on in our desert city this week! And with the school holidays here, make sure you check out our roundup of fab Spring Camps to keep the kiddos nice and busy! 

Here are the dates for your diary, mamas…


The Sound of Music

Considered by many to be the best-loved and most successful movie musical in history, The Sound of Music is an absolute family fave. From “My Favourite Things”, and “Edelweiss”, to “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and “Do Re Mi”, you won’t be able to stop yourself from singing along. Based on a true story, The Sound Of Music is more than entertainment – it’s a tale about the touching memory of Maria and the Von Trapp family, united through their love of music and their struggle for freedom, just prior to the Second World War. So, what are you waiting for, mamas? Get booking!

When: Thursday, 31 March to Saturday, 16 April 2016
Where: Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Madinat Jumeirah, Al Sufouh Road, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Cirque Le Noir

The circus is in town… World famous Cirque Le Noir is here! Touring the globe, these experts are best known for their complex stunts, including the Colombian Wheel of Death (two acrobats on a pair of spinning wheels rotating high above the stage?! Make sure the kids know these are not acts to try at home!). With acrobats, roller skating stunts and comedy, the audience feels part of the event as they sit in and around the performance – thanks to the custom build 360 degree stage!

When: Till Saturday, 2 April
Where: Dubai World Trade Centre, Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, UAE
How much: Tickets start from AED 199
