We were extremely proud to sponsor the Great British Day Out earlier this month, organised by Dubai’s British Business Group. This well-established event provides an annual opportunity for the British community in the UAE to come together for a family friendly day out. This year’s event included live music, and a host of activities for children including football coaching, face painting and performance workshops.
The Great British Day Out is hosted annually in the beautiful grounds of the British Embassy in Dubai. This year over 400 attendees joined together to celebrate all things British against a backdrop of West End entertainment and delicious British food – with the obligatory fish and chips and roast beef with Yorkshire pudding.
We fully embraced the British theme of the event by offering Chase Distillery drinks to those who attended, which was extremely well received! The delicious four flavours on offer included the original Chase Gin, Pink Grapefruit & Pomelo Gin, Rhubarb & Bramley Apple Gin and Chase Marmalade Vodka. All drinks were served by our Dubai team on the Royal Lawn against the backdrop of our beautifully decorated union jack Chesterfield sofa.
It was also fantastic to have our CEO, Jeremy Woodley, in attendance this year helping us to strengthen our relationships with clients and partners – and meet lots of new faces and contacts.
We are already looking forward to supporting the Great British Day Out in 2020, along with a range of other British Business Group events. For details on all our future events please visit our events page or email India Toyne to receive future invitations.
