1920s glamour essential, old sport…

Fans of the roaring twenties (and The Great Gatsby), get excited – a Great Gatsby themed event is coming to the QE2 in April.

‘Gatsby: The Immersive Experience’ will run from April 18 to April 27 and will take over three level of the legendary QE2 liner.

Rather than just being a theatre show, guests can expect to bump into ‘characters around every corner’, with comfortable shoes advised for walking – and dancing – your way right back to the 1920s.

No two events will be the same, meaning each guest will enjoy a totally different experience and rather than being a spectator, will be fully involved in the show.

Promising to engage all of the senses, the experience will run from 7.30pm each evening, with a soft drink and food package priced at Dhs395, while the Dhs495 package also includes house drinks and cocktails.

Need a little help getting into character? Head down early for your ‘Get Dolled Up’ appointment. For an additional Dhs375, guests can have their hair and make up done 1920’s style before the experience begins. Or if your outfit just needs a little extra, ‘The Flapper Kit’ or ‘The Old Boy’s Kit’ are Dhs80 on the door, and include three accessories to put the ‘great’ in ‘Great Gatsby’.

Those wishing to brush up on their dancing skills can also book a 30-minute Charleston class, available on Fridays and Saturdays, or head to a cocktail making masterclass to perfect the art of speakeasy mixed drinks.

For the full QE2 experience, guests can opt for an overnight stay with breakfast the next morning. Packages start from Dhs1,450.
