Calling all Budding Chefs and artists to the Top Chef Winter Cooking Camp!

Miracle on 34th Street – The Musical!

Our favourite musical has come to Dubai – it’s a miracle! Enjoy Christmas this year with an amazing musical of the classic film “Miracle on 34th Street”. The story follows Kris Kringle, a kind old bearded man who claims he is the real Santa Claus (he is!). When employed as Santa at a department store grotto, Kris quickly spreads his faith and love through New York City. This is a definite must-do for all mamas! A heart-warming tale about the significance of family, and the importance of belief. This is a piece to challenge all the non-believers, and reignite that Christmas spirit!

Pyjama Party!
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse – because they were all at the Mini Monsters Christmas Eve Pyjama Party, of course!
