Huge British street party coming to DUKES Dubai

Union flags, Eton mess and bunting galore at this Saturday's party

A huge British street party is coming to Dubai later next week.

DUKES Dubai is hosting the Great British Street Party on Saturday November 18.

A highlight of the event will be the two giant tables – measuring 1,000ft in total – to stretch the length of the resort packed full of authentic food and drink.

Guests will enjoy bottomless picnic baskets, free-flowing drinks, live entertainment and more at this Saturday afternoon party dedicated to all things British.

Amid the bunting, Union flags and trestle tables you’ll find a red carpet leading you to the venue’s culinary treats. Tuck into all your British favourites including sausage rolls, quiche, sliced roast beef, Scotch eggs and pickles. Plus there’s traditional trifle and Eton mess for those with a sweet tooth.

“What can be more British than a street party in the glorious sunshine?” asks F&B director at DUKES Carl Chapman. “In typical British style, our ‘street’ will be adorned with bunting and flags. Entertainers will parade up and down and we’re promising a real carnival-style atmosphere.

“The UK may be nearly 5,000 miles away, but for one afternoon guests can feel as if they are there. This is British hospitality at its very best, join family, friends, neighbours or workmates and celebrate all things Blighty.”

A live DJ will be playing tunes from classic British acts including The Beatles and Rolling Stones, to Oasis, Pulp, Blur, Adele and Ed Sheeran.
Dhs450. 1pm-5pm. Sat Nov 18 only. DUKES Dubai, Palm Jumeirah, streetparty@dukeshotel.com (04 455 1111).
