not-a-rugby-fanOK, it’s the Dubai Rugby 7’s weekend and probably nearly everyone you know is planning on heading up the Al Ain Road at some point this weekend but what is there to do if watching rugby just isn’t for you?

It seems to me that expats in Dubai seem to put up their Christmas Trees much earlier that they would back home so you could join in the trend by unpacking the Christmas Tree, then attempt to unravel the lights or my suggestion would be go and buy a new set (as it saves on the stress factor).  But really the weather is too perfect to stay indoors so how about exploring the recently opened Jumeirah Corniche for a stroll and stopping off for a bite to eat at one of the fishing villages for some fresh seafood or even buy some fish from the fabulous fishmarkets and cook at home.

You could start on your Christmas shopping by visiting the Market of Everything being held at Safa Park on Saturday.  The Market of Everything brings together upcoming brands, makers, designers, crafters, artists, vintage and second-hand vendors. This market is a treasure trove of unique finds you don’t see everyday in Dubai, all within the beautiful outdoors setting of Safa Park.

Staying outdoors, head down to the Marina to Skydive Dubai and witness the champions in the sky for the 5th Dubai International Parachuting Championship where everyday from 8am till sunset skydivers will be falling out of the sky.  There is free entry and parking. Read more

ask louiseQuestionMy name is Charlotte and I have recently moved to Dubai. When living in the UK I took part in numerous amateur musical theatre productions. I’m really eager to get involved in musical productions again now that I’m in Dubai. I have searched for amateur companies who put on musicals but I can’t seem to find any.

I would be very grateful if you could let me know of any forthcoming shows or amateur groups.

AnswerThere are a couple of companies that put on shows in Dubai and are always looking for cast members.  These include Popular Productions (combination of professional and amateur – shows such as Wizard of Oz) and Ductac (put on shows like ‘Cats’).  Visiting theatre companies also visit Dubai and put on shows and put a call out for extra cast members.  Sometimes this is just for children and sometimes for adults too.  Watch the press for more details of shows coming to Dubai.  There are other amateur drama groups that do not do musicals but you may also be interested in them – Dubai Drama Group & Backstage.
