Cairo isn’t the most Christmas-y city in the world, but there’s still some good stuff going on this week. And with The Nutcracker at the Opera House and a set Christmas meal at Cairo Jazz Club (complete with Riff Band), you can still get your dose of festive cheer. For fuller listings, check out iCroc.com (also available on your mobile), the Cairo Live Events Guide, and Cairo360.com.
Until the 22nd December, al-Sawy Culture Wheel is hosting a Chocofest! Activities include art workshops, puppet shows and music, all themed around chocolate, from 5 pm each evening. Entrance is 15 LE for non-members and 12 LE for members.
Christmas day, even yay-er! To celebrate, the Riff Band are playing at the Cairo Jazz Club, where there will be a festive set menu, and all profits are being donated to the orphan charity SOS Children’s Villages, Egypt. 10:30 pm; free.
