ABU DHABI // The Abu Dhabi Science Festival is one of many events at Mushrif Central Park in the next few months.

A classical concert by world-renowned and Emirati artists, fitness classes, and food and craft markets are all on at the park in the next two months.

“There is something for everyone this season,” said Tanuja Kothari, the park’s project director.

One of the most anticipated events of this winter’s schedule will be Grammy Award winner Jordi Savall’s classical performance in the amphitheatre on November 23. The Catalan conductor will be joined by his musical ensemble Hespèrion XXI as well as Emirati artists for a ticket-only performance of a musical adaptation of Ibn Battuta’s travels.

Get driver fit classes are held Mondays and Wednesdays, 7pm, and Fridays, 9am, until November 19. The class focuses on the muscle groups, skills and techniques the world’s top racing drivers use. A less strenuous option is the #WalkWithMeUAE community walk, by Imperial College London Diabetes Centre, Saturdays, 7pm, until November 13.

The ripe food and craft market returns October 31 with about 40 vendors Saturdays, 4pm to 9pm.

The park itself is open daily 8am to 10pm, last entry 9pm.
