Christmas Wonderland Festive Market

If you’ve never swooned over the glühwein and bratwurst on offer at a German Christmas market, here’s your chance. The Christmas Wonderland Festive Market at Gardens by the Bay is modelled after a traditional European one, with an epic spiegeltent (‘mirror tent’) as the fair’s centrepiece. Be sure to bring your cameras along because the gardens will be done up with dazzling 16 metre-tall arches and handcrafted Luminarielight sculptures from Italy. The festive market is open 3-11pm daily until 21 December;the light displays will go on every day, 7pm to midnight , until 1 January 2015.

Peter Pan - The Never Ending Story

Photo credit: Leslie Artamonow We saw a much more macabre adaptation of JM Barrie’s beloved fairy tale as part of the Singapore International Festival of Arts back in September, but with Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to go back to the original bedtime story of Peter Pan, the Darling kids, and Captain Hook. Fly away to Neverland with songs by Robbie Williams, Westlife, Josh Groban and more. We are giving three lucky winners a set of four category one tickets (worth $138 per ticket) each. Participate in our contest here.

Music

Celebrate December

Make your way to the bay for two weeks of free gigs. String quartet VOX bring their classical covers of modern tunes (including a few jingle bells) to the waterfront on 20 December, and Gareth Fernandez and The Momma Shop belt out their soulful tracks on the same stage a week after. Or just take a stroll around the Esplanade to check out the other fringe activities – such as craft workshops – that are also part of the festivities.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

‘The Defining Chapter’ declare the posters for this wrap-up episode in Peter Jackson’s trilogy of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ prequels, the last of three films stretched from JRR Tolkien's one novel, 'The Hobbit'. Exactly what’s being defined is left conveniently vague, because what we have here is a whole lot more of Jackson’s proven formula: more battles, more creatures, more not-quite-comical asides, more stern speechifying and more gob-smackingly elaborate action set pieces. If you’ve been enjoying ‘The Hobbit’ so far, you’re in for a treat. But if you were hoping for something extra or different this time around – a touch of honest emotion, perhaps –  then ‘The Battle of the Five Armies’ may leave you wanting.We pick up the story right where ‘The Desolation of Smaug’ cut to black: the dragon is on the rampage, and all Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and his Dwarvish companions can do is watch as the lizard lays waste to Laketown. It’s a phenomenal opening, thunderous and apocalyptic, pitching us into the heart of a city on fire. But when the smoke clears the script begins to lose focus, as what seems like every single character in the trilogy so far (bar one slimy riddler) comes crawling out of the stonework. While Thorin (Richard Armitage) indulges his lust for gold to the frustration of bowman Bard (Luke Evans) and elf-king Thranduil (Lee Pace), Gandalf recruits a few old pals to assist in his escape from the dungeons of Dul Guldur. In the confusion, poor Bilbo feels more like a su
