10 things to do in Dubai this week



The Laughter Factory
To mark International Women’s Day, the Laughter Factory team is offering expectant mums an evening of giggles on the house “because happy mums make happy babies”. It might sound like they’re the ones having the laugh, but, according to them, “research has proved that a child’s personality can be shaped by the health and mood of the mother”. We can’t claim to know otherwise, so it sounds like good fun to us, especially as the line-up includes Irish funnywoman Eleanor Tiernan alongside Marlon Davis and Michael Fabbri. If you can’t catch it on the Thursday, then you can always grab a seat at the Park Rotana Abu Dhabi event on Wednesday or back in Dubai at Mövenpick JBR on Friday. Pregnant or not, you’ll be in for a night of belly laughs, guaranteed.
When: Thursday, March 8
Where: Grand Millennium Barsha Heights, Dubai
Price: From AED150

For The Love of Words
Contemporary poets from the UAE and UK are coming together for an awesome evening of spoken word performances, organised by the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature. The likes of poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy, Roger McGough, Afra Atiq and Khalid Al Budoor will wow you with their wit.

Create Art Like the Master’s: Kandinsky
