Two brand-new theatres are opening at Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates

The Mall of the Emirates is opening not one, but two new theatres.

And, to celebrate the launch, the new cultural destination is hosting a jam-packed family day out with various musical and dance performances, workshops and talks.

The all-day fun kicks off in the morning with a violin concerto, and later on in the afternoon, Magic Phil will be taking to the stage to perform some of his cool tricks – and no doubt make the kids giggle with his silly jokes.

Gymnastics and dance showcases will be put on by Du Gym and Sharmila Dance respectively.

And, in addition to all the happenings on the stage, kids will be able to join in heaps of activities, too.

The theatres are different sizes with one seating 545 and the other 150.

The programme of events will be diverse and include art exhibitions, workshops and children’s performances (such as Tom Gates Live and The Mr Men) as well as music concerts and stand-up comedy.

It's all about theatre daaahhhling!
Free. Saturday January 25, 11am-5.30pm. The Theatre at Mall of the Emirates, Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, www.malloftheemirates.com.
