phone, technology

It’s that time of the week again – turn off your computer, leave your emails alone, and step outside to enjoy everything the UAE has to offer. This weekend is a diverse bag of entertainment and, from the beach to the big screen, we can’t wait to get started.

Catching a play

Cripple Group Play

Fresh from its curtain call in London and Broadway, critically acclaimed play, The Cripple of Inishmaan, has landed in Dubai just in time for the run up to St Patrick’s Day. The laugh-out-loud comedy is about group of excitement-starved islanders off the coast of Ireland, who hear that an American filmcrew is coming to town. The international cast includes actors from the UK, South Africa and the UAE. For more information and tickets, visit here.


Running for our lives

marthon training

To celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8), TribeFit have organised a fun run this Friday. Taking place at their Marina gym at 8am, competitors have the opportunity to become members of Breast Cancer Arabia, while a host of prizes will be up for grabs. The winner of the fun run will receive one month free membership at TribeFit. For more information, visit here.


Catching some surf


Now we may have ulterior motives for heading down to this event (hot surfers alert!) but this competition at Um Sequim Open Beach is one for all the family. On Friday and Saturday the ESSA Sunset Open 2015 will see professionals battle it out on the waves. There will also be musicians, artists and loads of activities. For more information, visit here.


One for the week

We’re excited to see newly released film, Still Alice, starring Julianne Moore, Kate Bosworth, Alec Baldwin, and Kristen Stewart. Julianne, who won an Oscar for her role, does a stellar job playing Alice, a linguistics professor who is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease. The harrowing story follows Alice as her mind deteriorates through the incurable diagnosis, while still trying to maintain a good quality of life for her and her family.
