The sound of Dubai

'Amazing Dubai', the first-ever musical in English about Dubai, is on at the Madinat Theatre. Featuring multi-national UAE based talent, the show is a spectacular telling of the emirate's journey from a small fishing community to one of the most modern metropolises in the world. The hour-long musical is now being performed twice a day, year-round, but try to get in quick.

See gold, lots of gold

DIFC's Opera Gallery will be displaying a carefully curated selection of works from more than 25 international artists. The 'Gold' exhibition showcases the precious metal in various forms, including some works by famed surrealist Salvador Dali.

Free sweet treats at City Walk

Who doesn't like free stuff? For the whole of October, Eggspectation in Dubai's City Walk is giving away free s'mores. Don't know what it is? To the uninitiated, s'mores is a brioche stuffed with Nutellla and marshmallows. It's drizzled with maple syrup and chocolate sauce. You can grab it for free by going to Eggspectation's Facebook page, taking a photo of the promotion and simply showing it at the City Walk branch.

Get something for a bargain

Dubai Flea Market is back this Saturday, taking place every first Friday or Saturday of every month, the flea market is the place to be if you're looking for pre-loved clothing, furniture and even books. The sweet thing about it is that some items can be bought for as little as Dh10.

Enjoy an open sports day

There will be an open day in the Els Club in Dubai Sports City to celebrate the start of the news season. Fun activities will be available for the whole family to enjoy. One can also try out some live golf experiences with the Butch Harmon School of Golf.
