It is here you will find the week’s ideas for a place to EAT OUT, an interesting OUTING and an EVENT you could experience this weekend.

I was pleasantly surprised with the size and interest of the audience at the Emirates Lit Fest talk for my book: Saudi Arabia – Vision or Mirage. I have no doubt this engagement is down to your excellent radio mention ahead of the event.

Thank you Monica
