Great British Day Out coming to Dubai

Huge party with food trucks and live music to celebrate best of British

Get ready for the ultimate British day out, because a huge British party is coming Dubai.

The British Embassy in Dubai is preparing the Great British Day Out, which will be hosted for the first time on Friday October 13, on the Royal Lawn of the British Embassy.

Think classic British picnic grub, afternoon tea (courtesy of 1762’s unmistakable green double-decker bus “Monty”), food trucks, picnic benches, a special occasion birthday cake courtesy of DUKES Dubai Hotel – plus a selection of distinctly British beverages served up by MMI.

There will be a schedule of sports activities for kids during the day, and for adults in the evening. Expect giant wigwams, bouncy castles, face-painting and balloon bending from Flying Elephant. DJ Marky Mark will be providing the tunes during the day, and magician Magic Phil will make an appearance.

Headlining the day’s entertainment will be British rockers – and, coincidentally, our Band of the Year – The Boxtones, so expect big tunes, catch choruses and rocky riffs all night.

Celebrate all things British with an all-day package, with tickets including entertainment, food, beverages. Soft drinks packages come in at Dhs225, regular packages are available for Dhs425, and kids under six go for free.

We can’t think of many ways to spend a Friday than with day of jolly good British hospitality. For more information, head to

Dhs225 (soft drinks), Dhs425 (regular package). Fri Oct 13, 4pm-midnight. British Embassy, Al Seef Road, Bur Dubai,
