CONNECTOR.AE 3 Welcome Good things come in small packages, and February is no different. It may be the shortest month of the year, but it is still packed full of fun things to do. In only 28 days there is so much on, starting with the 15th Emirates Airline Festival Of Literature and continuing with the return of the much loved Taste Of Dubai. Sports fans can enjoy the Dubai Duty Free Tennis and the Asian Le Mans Series, and those who enjoy music and arts have the InClassica series to keep them entertained, as well as a musical version of Shrek. The month ends with the start of the Sikka Arts Festival. There really is something for all ages and all tastes. Check out our round up of some of the key events happening across the country this month from pages 7 to 13.
