Apart from the glorious views from the Palm Jumeirah, you will be entertained by a choir singing festive tunes guaranteed to have you singing along. Dancing elves will even be on hand to spread extra Christmas cheer.

Elsewhere, The Pointe will be setting up it’s very own ice rink for you to show off your skating skills – and you won’t want to miss the giant snow ball filled with snow for those ‘Gram worthy shots.

The highlight will be the glittering tree lighting ceremony. So round up your friends and family and head down on Friday December 13 to celebrate.
