1920s-themed Gatsby party coming to the QE2

Get ready to go back 100 years for the fully immersive event

1920s-themed Gatsby party coming to the QE2

It's time to get on your bowties and flapper dresses, because an immersive Gatsby party evoking the roaring twenties is coming to the QE2.

Running for two weeks, the unique events will see a cast of international performers playing party guests across three decks. So instead of sitting watching, you dance and discover.

And no two events will be the same, meaning if you come back there will be different scenes and storylines to experience in different areas of the historic vessel, which is permanently berthed as a floating hotel in Deira.

The classic novel The Great Gatsby offers a portrayal of a wild life as well as an authentic perspective on status, wealth and love. And we can't think of a better place than the QE2 to get all dressed up and relive the glamour of the era.

And now the celebrated magnate from the West Egg neighborhood of Long Island in New York is bringing his full entourage and promises an extravagant night to remember.

Guests can interact with all of the performers, so whether you want to get into character or just be yourself, you're still a part of the story.

Old money, new money, hustler, gangster, boss or doll – you'll find them all here.

Packages start at Dhs350 which gets you entrance to the experience with unlimited soft drinks and food – or you can get house beverages for Dhs495.

Meanwhile, if you want to stay over on the QE2, there's a special package for Dhs1,650 that includes entrance for two with unlimited house beverages as well as exclusive experiences with the cast.

In addition to the main event, add-ons mean you can get dolled up with a special hair and make-up appointment or buy fashion items from the era to get into the party.

There will also be 30-minute intro lessons to the Charleston during separate workshops, while ladies and gents can both learn how to perfect their own 1920s style.

Tickets aren't on sale yet, but we do know that it's running from Thursday April 18 to Saturday April 27, with workshops on at various times throughout the day.

Get ready to go back 100 years for the ultimate glamorous party, old sport.
From Dhs350. Thu Apr 18-Sat Apr 27, 7.30pm nightly. QE2, Mina Rashid, experiencegatsby.com.
