After the all the festive events and celebrations, Dubai will witness a rather quiet weekend in order to prepare for the arrival of the new 2015 year.
However, that does not mean that there is a limited variety of weekend events in Dubai. Two of the most famous Arab singers, Amr Diab and Hussain Al Jassmi, will perform in a concert on December 26 (Friday) at the Dubai Media City Amphitheater. Tickets for the show start at AED250 for general admission and reach up to AED395 for a Golden Circle ticket.
You can also enjoy performances and support young and rising talents, who are yet to make their way on the big stage. BreakTHrough YOUTH will gather some of the most promising young talents in a unique mix arts show. There will be everything from music, dance, film and even spoken word. The event is suitable for people of all ages. Therefore, make sure you bring the entire family. Tickets start at just AED60 and the event itself will be held at The Courtyard Playhouse on December 26 (Friday).
This weekend you will also have a last chance at checking out a few other events that kicked off earlier this month. Among them is Souk Festive Market 2014. If you are still feeling in a festive mood, you can visit this market by December 27.
Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka shows will also run until December 27. So, if you still have not taken your kids to see this stage adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic tale, do that while you still can.
Let’s not forget that Global Village is still open and will continue to be until April 11, 2015. So, those willing to enjoy shopping, festivals and entertainment at one place, should not hesitate to do that this weekend.
Despite the limited events program, the movie theatres in Dubai are always open. There are plenty of films you can go and watch this week. The latest Night at the Museum movie is not to be missed, since it features big actors like Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Dan Stevens and the late Robin Williams. Make sure you add the Foxcatcher with Channing Tatum to your weekend watch-list. Along with Birdman and The Imitation Game, this biographical flick is predicted to be among the big winners at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards.
If you are planning to enjoy a family afternoon at the cinema, you can get tickets for the animated movies Home and Penguins of Madagascar. However, the film of the month has got to be the latest Hobbit movie. Therefore, if you still have not watched, it, you can do that over the weekend.
