A much-loved British tradition which is now in its 122nd year the BBC Proms is coming to Dubai Opera over four days from the 21st to the 24th March 2017. Bringing the best of the best classical music, the BBC Proms promises to wow Dubai with this iconic festival. Start your night off right with a visit to one of the many restaurants near Dubai Opera.

Whether you’re a treadmill hogger or a couch potato this is one run you’ll love participating in. Known around the world as being a 5km run like no other, The Color Run brings more colour, happiness and music than ever before. Plus the beauty of this 5K is that there is zero pressure! You can run, walk or simply dance your way through the colourful 5k course. After all that exercise, it would be rude not to treat yourself to a visit to Yas Mall. Have a leisurely bite to eat at Giraffe Yas Mall or Shakespeare and Co or treat your weary body to a Full Body Massage at Tips & Toes!
