Just Because It's June Doesn't Mean There Isn't Stuff To Do – Here Are 7 Awesome Things On

Even though it is the month of Ramadan.

Road Run

It won’t be too long before working hours are reduced for Ramadan and residents start traveling for the summer break. But just before all that happens, here are the last few events you can attend for this season. Plus, there’s other stuff to keep you going through Ramadan should you be one of those who doesn’t fast.

1. Try an Iftar

And stay back for Suhoor too.

Embrace the culture of the city this Holy Month of Ramadan. Try fasting for the day (it’s not as easy as you think) and break your fast at an Iftar with family and friends. And just in case you need some help finding one, we'll be sharing a list shortly (just one of the reasons why you should keep coming back).

2. Watch The Merry Wives of Windsor

DUCTAC at Mall of the Emirates, 2 – 4 June (04 341 7777)

Produced in honour of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the play follows the antics of Falsaff who tried to swindle money out of two prominent housewives in Windsor. The result: he finds himself being outwitted by them. Watch the all-male cast double up in roles to bring you this fun, family-friendly show.
