Visiting Mosque

Not sure if this is the right place for this but I'm in need of some advice!
Some business contacts have invited me and some colleagues to visit the mosque during Ramadan as part of 'share Ramadan'. There's a three course meal, opportunity for questions and to watch the sunset prayer. I'm really interested and really looking forward to going (am a practising Christian and have been in a non-Christian place of worship before and am fascinated by other cultures). However - and this is trivial - I have no idea what to wear!! I have only realised today that I have no trousers that aren't skinny type jeans/trousers. I could probably find a below the knee skirt but would that be ok? I really don't know!!
Thanks in advance for any advice

Jeans or skirt are fine, but you will be asked to remove your shoes so try not to have holes in your socks wink
Also take a scarf to cover your head.

do men have to cover their heads or is it just the women?

Stick to the jeans/trousers rather than a skirt unless it goes right down to your ankles.

men dont cover their hair, not sure if you will be expected to or not.
