Christmas Programmes

‘Tis the season to be giving, make a difference this Christmas and swing by Gardens by the Bay  to show your support for inclusive performances!

Look forward to live performances by inclusive groups and homegrown acts such as The Human Jingle Bells and The Salvation Army Band.

We are also partnering with The Salvation Army on a gift donation drive that will benefit the needy. Do bring along your pre-loved toys – in good condition of course! – and drop them off at the collection point near the ticketing counters at The Canopy.
