Participate in an unexpected game of Bingo at Zero Gravity

Don’t be alarmed if the game of Bingo is interrupted by a sing-a-long to a random Christmas song and a (seated) dance party with music from Westlife. This party is one for those who like the unexpected! Friday 28 January, from 6pm. AED 150.
