BBG's Great British Day Out - 30th Anniversary Celebration

Event Date
Fri, 13 October , 2017
Al Seef Road British Embassy Compound, Dubai,


Thank you for coming along to help us celebrate 30 years of working to support British businesses in the UAE!
To mark this milestone, we have organised a Great British Day Out complete with classic British picnic favourites, afternoon tea with Monty, 1762’s iconic green double-decker, food trucks, picnic benches, a delightful birthday cake courtesy of Dukes Dubai Hotel, and a selection of distinctly British beverages served up by MMI. 
You can also expect giant wigwams, bouncy castles, face-painting and balloon bending from Flying Elephant, and a magic show with Magic Phil for the kids.
The adults among us can enjoy DJ Marky Mark’s tunes all day and special set by local favourites, The Boxtones, later on in the evening.


Please email GBDObookings@bbgdxb.com to let us know how many tickets you would like. We also need to know how many tickets are for the soft drink vs regular vs under-12 packages so we can email you back with the correct invoice.
