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.

Film

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.
