 La Perle by Dragone

Wed‎-Thu, ‎16-17‎ ‎September‎ ‎2020

18:00 - 22:30

For a truly unique theatre experience, book tickets to La Perle – the region's first permanent show that combines breathtaking choreography, daring stunts and a novel 'aqua theatre'.

Created by the legendary artistic director Franco Dragone, the story of La Perle pays homage to the UAE’s pearl diving history in spectacular style thanks to the purpose-built theatre, where gushing waterfalls and torrents of rain flood the stage and then drain within seconds.

You'll be at the edge of your seat as world-class artists perform remarkable feats, including aerial acrobatics, death-defying dives and unbelievable motorcycle tricks – this show never fails to impress. Double up the fun with their Dinner & Show Package starting at AED295, or make a getaway of it with the Ultimate Staycation Package from AED538

The Laughter Factory

‎Fri‎, ‎25‎ ‎September‎ ‎2020


There are plenty of ways to get your fill of comedy in Dubai, a regular is The Laughter Factory, which is back with its monthly dose of chuckles. Get tickets to attend the last comedy night of the September tour at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah starring Stephen Carlin, Pierre Hollins and Sally-Anne Hayward.

Each a critically acclaimed performer in their own right, the trio will whip together an evening to keep you cackling with one home run of a joke after another. Sit back and relax as you enjoy their latest routines that will leave no stone or subject unturned. From Carlin’s celebrity-certified talent – he toured with Stewart Lee and Stephen Merchant – to Hollins’ knack for turning mundane topics into knee-slapping stories, you’re in for quite the show. Rounding it off is master storyteller Hayward, winner of the Holsten Pils ‘Fans of Comedy’ award.

Note that there is a minimum spend of AED50 on F&B in addition to the tickets
