Christmas at Capitol Singapore and CHIJMES

Skating outdoors with a Christmas tree in the background – it seems like a scene that only exists on our TV screens or in travel brochures. But instead of booking a trip overseas for that reality, you can have a similar experience right at Capitol Singapore from 6th – 24th December 2019

You’ll be able to get a little closer to your winter dreams with snowfall and a skating rink this year-end. There are also art installations and a festive European Christmas market where you can shop for gifts and Christmas snacks – just in time for your upcoming Secret Santa exchange!

Experience ice-skating and snowfall 

Strap some skates on and put your gracefulness to the test at the skating rink at Capitol Singapore. The surrounding mood lights mean this could also be your perfect date spot this Christmas.

Families won’t need to worry too – there are skates and skating aids available for children (minimum 6 years old) so they can be introduced to the rink if it’s their first time. Take this chance to catch up on some bonding time together – it is what X’mas is about after all. Each session lasts for 30 minutes, so make every minute count.

The snowfall at Capitol Singapore will be happening 3 times throughout the night at 7:15PM, 8:15PM and 9:15PM so plan your skate session well and you’ll be able to make the most of both!

Art Installations and laser projection show

We can’t deny how art installations and light displays always provide a visual feast for our eyes and the ‘gram.

Over at CHIJMES, look forward to such photo opportunities this December as 7 Christmas-themed art installations have been set up around the vicinity to transform the space into an Instagram Wonderland for you to snap photos with.

When we think of CHIJMES, many of us think of its clean, whitewashed facade. But with the Laser Projection Show on the CHIJMES Hall, it’ll be transformed into a festive show with images of snowflakes and Santa’s sleigh flashed across. For an early X’mas gift, look out for QR codes that will be shown amidst the shows and scan them for a chance to redeem gifts from CHIJMES. Be there from 8PM-11PM between 6th – 25th December 2019 to catch it.
