Well, that was a long weekend wasn't it? Now it's Monday and it's back to work – but don't fret, because we've got loads of exciting things for you to do across the city.

As well as another great Dubai Fitness Challenge event, we've got theatre, we've got waterpark offers and we've got a rather fascinating science event.

All in all, there are loads of reasons to get out and explore the city. Not to mention, there's another long weekend coming up very soon.

We'll see you tomorrow morning.

1. See Snow White like never before
Blanche Neige Voit Rouge (Snow White Sees Red) is a unique stage adaptation which sees the much-loved fairy tale played out by two young actresses, exploring the true nature of the characters. During the 50-minute show, which is performed in French, the Queen becomes increasingly neurotic while Snow White is revealed to be a teenager in the midst of a life crisis.

To celebrate UAE National Day, Wild Wadi Waterpark is giving residents special discounted entry. You can get in to the park for just Dhs141, which includes a limited-edition flag-themed luxury towel and a meal at one of its dining spots. Even better, the deal lasts all month meaning there's plenty of time to make a splash.

3. See amazing solar houses

It's another week of the Dubai Fitness Challenge, so why not head down to Kite Beach to try a bit of sea kayaking? Instructors will be holding a free group session there every day this week until Friday, giving you the chance to try out a bit of paddling in the water. It's the perfect weather for it, too.
Free entry. 2pm daily. Until Thu Nov 22. Kite Beach Fitness village,

5. Get café discounts (if you have a moustache)
If there was ever a time to experiment growing a moustache, from the classic handlebar to the ever pointy dali, it's during Movember, but Tania’s Teahouse is giving more of a reason to rock that 'stache. Every Monday for the rest of November, gents with any form of facial hair above their lip that dine at the café will be given ten percent off their bill.
Every Mon, 8am-10pm. Until Mon Nov 26. Jumeriah Beach Road, Jumeirah, (04 324 0021).
