2020 Christmas Events in Dubai
All the way from outstanding comedy performances to a mesmerising ice show and a lot more. Here is a list of all the best events taking place in Dubai:
The Laughter Factory
Brace yourself to laugh at your heart’s content with Humor Factory’s ‘A Genuinely Unforgettable End of Season Party Trip’. The giggle-fest is already in operation and guests will book tickets for shows. This month’s version includes comedians Prince Abdi, Naomi Cooper and Paul Tonkinson with shows planned at various places and dates.
Santa’s Post Office at Eggs and Soldiers
Christmas is incomplete without letters to Santa. With the Santa Post Office, Eggs and Soldiers are making this favourite tradition a fact for young sailors. The timber post office is housed in the Eggs & Soldiers shop in Times Square Middle, ready for letters to the North Pole. No stamps are needed!
Beauty and the Beast
Look back and remember your beloved fairy tale with a live production of Beauty and the Beast at the QE2 Theater before Christmas Day. Based on the French fairy tale of La Belle et la Bete, this stunning storey of Belle and the confused beast can leave you enthralled. Dates and timings differ for multiple shows in Queen Elizabeth 2.
Seeking to swing your Christmas in Dubai for 2020? Book your tickets to a festive jazz concert called Santa Baby at the Dubai Opera. The festival, organised by the NSO Big Band, will include the country’s top jazz musicians with performers and guest jazz artists from Armenia and Europe. Get ready to swing and shake the iconic Christmas jams at this Xmas music event in Dubai!
The singers Natasha Hamilton and Gareth Gates will play their greatest hits at the Dubai Opera for a huge Christmas concert this December. The legendary British vocalists will perform classical compositions from the nineties and more on stage. Aptly called Dubai 92’s Christmas Cracker, the event will take visitors to the days of Christmas past with the tunes of old classics like Make It Snow, Last Christmas and other festive tunes.
The Snowman at the Mall of Emirates
Are your kids in love with Christmas shows? If yes, then taking them to the Snowman Screening at the Emirate Mall can light up their faces instantly. The lengthiest Christmas show in the history of the English theatre will be shown for the first time in the UAE. Based on Raymond Brigg’s novel, The Snowman is a tale about a boy whose snowman comes alive.
The alluring ice-skating fest, Cirque de Glace, is another excuse to attend the Dubai Opera this festive season. The artists will demonstrate their ice-skating abilities and tell the tale of the planet’s formation with amazing acrobatics, backed by lilting music and exhilarating shows that will steal your breath away.
Watch Jack and the Beanstalk at Intercontinental Hotel
The 14th edition of Dubai Pantomime has shifted to the Inter-Continental Hotel to please a socially distant crowd. But with the planned appearance of Jack and the Beanstalk, it promises to be just as exciting in the new place. Thanks to the comedic capers and fun costumes, your children will love it.
