Ramadan 2019 has been pretty mellow, whether you’ve been fasting OR not. And although things are a bit slower than usual, we’ve compiled a list of places to be and things to do for this week. Whether you’re looking for a spot to break your fast in, or a fun Ramadan activity, we’ve got your back, Tipsters.

Jadal are hosting a circus cabaret night within the confines of their garden this Saturday, promising an evening of laughter and fun for everyone. Grab a friend or head over there with your family – after all, it is a long climb up the Kalha Stairway, and you could use a hand.
