Get excited for snow globes, beers, a light projection show and more!
When two city icons collaborate for the Christmas season, you can expect a lineup of events that are guaranteed to put you in a festive mood – Capitol Singapore and CHIJMES have certainly got the right idea.
A magical snow globe in the city
If you’ve been dreaming of a white Christmas, Capitol Singapore is making it snow by way of foam balls. Sure, foam snow is not quite the same, but if you need to save your bank account for those Christmas presents, this is as close as you can get to a wintery experience while shopping in the city. And yes we’d dive straight in. You can’t miss the oversized snow globe at the Outdoor Plaza! Want in? Simply present a same-day receipt (from either Capitol Singapore or Chijmes) to be transported into this enchanting wonderland for that perfect photo op.
Capitol Singapore, Outdoor Plaza Level 1, till 25 Dec, 12noon – 9pm
Jazz up your dinner
Now here’s a dinner experience to put you in a celebratory mood. On 24 and 25 December, Capitol Singapore will be taking dinner entertainment up a few notches with stilt walkers, carolling, and – get this – an aerial silk performance at Arcade@ The Capitol Kempinksi telling the story of “Rudolph’s Heroic Journey”.
Who’s up for a post-dinner treat? If you’re the type who gets late-night cravings (hands up over here), we hear there’s going to be new restaurants opening to help you hit the spot. Think German-style pastries and a mean cuppa joe by Berthold Delikatessen; or an interactive dinner experience and German brews by Frieda.
Want to get into the Singapore Book Of Records?
If you thought Chijmes’ gorgeous green lawn was just for chilling, well, you thought wrong. Join the mission to break the record for the longest beer slide in Singapore – you’ll get two chances to play with any same-day receipt from Capitol Singapore or Chijmes.
Did somebody say light show?
Beer aside, the light projection show is another reason to head to Chijmes. The facade of the chapel will be illuminated with an epic lighting and music show from 8pm to 11pm till 25 Dec. Plus, on Friday to Sunday, keep an eye out for the QR codes, which will be magically appearing for eagle-eyed visitors to redeem a gift. Simply scan the QR codes for your chance to win prizes such as dining vouchers and more.
Heads up: this special QR code segment will only take place on Friday to Sunday nights!
Countdown to the New Year
Celebrate the last day of 2018 at Chijmes with local jazz band Summertimes Hotshot and DJ Reiki, or at Capitol Singapore with bilingual pop-rock band E.D.M. and DJ Red. Partygoers at Arcade@ The Capitol Kempinski can stand a chance to win a stay at The Capitol Kempinski hotel when they join in the iconic balloon drop.
Capitol Singapore and Chijmes, 31 Dec, 8.30pm to 12.30am
