Welcome to the house of fun

Ever seen Kool and the Gang? No? Now’s your chance, as part of daily activities from January 16-February 1 at the Twenty-Four Funzone, located beside the Doha Golf Club. It will be a huge pop-up big top dedicated to art, fun and sport, welcoming people every day from 7pm to 2am to have fun with mates.

A wide variety of activities have been thought to offer something for everyone. For those who love music and the performing arts, a big stage will showcase new performers every day. Mark your diaries for January 17, when Chico and The Gipsys will perform. During the days that follow, Cirque Eloize, All Star Band,Frederic Sharp and many other international artists will entertain the visiting crowds with music, magic shows and so much more.

Closing the event is none other than Kool and the Gang to get us all buzzing with their very own brand of crazy funk.

Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the daily sports highlights, activities and challenges like Speed Ball, Goal Wall, pool tables, and table football, as well as a variety of video games.

Other highlights for the adrenaline junkie include leaping from a 40-metre-high platform at the funzone’s on-site bungee jump. Meanwhile, for those who would prefer a more peaceful aerial view of Doha, a hot-air balloon ride could be the perfect attraction.
