Well, it’s that time of year again! This is my last post of 2016 so I just wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas for Sunday and a very Happy New Year when it comes! And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then I hope you enjoy the happy vibes at this time of year. Be good to each other and I hope 2017 is your best year yet! There is still time to leave your mark on 2016 as well so why not get out there and do something memorable?
My next post will be on Wednesday, January 4th. Events can still be added to the calendar, as usual, through the Submit Your Event section in the meantime.
Anyway, down to the latest update on what’s happening in Bermuda. Check out all your NYE options on the Calendar here or see the Quick Recap at the end of the post for a handy list (keep your eye on the calendar itself for submissions made after this post is published). As always, this post includes an update on everything added to the calendar since the previous week, while the Quick Recap Section at the bottom of the post is a full listing of all upcoming events, including those previously covered in previous posts.
Hope to see lots of you on Elbow Beach with your Santa hats on!
The screening will be at 5pm in the Tradewinds Auditorium. In Peter Wright’s classic production for The Royal Ballet, the stage sparkles with theatrical magic – a Christmas tree grows before our eyes, toy soldiers come to life to fight the villainous Mouse King and Clara and the Nutcracker are whisked off to the Kingdom of Sweets on a golden sleigh. Tchaikovsky’s score contains some of ballet’s best-known melodies, from the flurrying Waltz of the Snowflakes to the dream-like Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy – all brilliantly set in Wright’s choreography. The running time is 135 minutes with one interval.
This production features Bermuda’s own Ravi Cannonier-Watson – come and meet Ravi at this special event!
The cost is $20 for BUEI members, $25 for non-members and $10 for students. Part proceeds to help with Ravi’s school expenses at The Royal Ballet.
Can you believe that Christmas Day is a week on Sunday? The festive events are continuing to come in thick and fast – so far, as you can see in the Quick Recap section, there are ten NYE events on the calendar for you to choose from! Next week’s post (December 21st) is the final post of 2016, so if you’re an event organiser, please submit details of your event now to be included!
Here are the latest Bermuda happenings which have been added to the calendar since last week’s post. As always, don’t forget to check out the Quick Recap Section at the bottom of the post for a full listing of all upcoming events, including those previously covered in previous posts.
If you like bar-hopping and you enjoy running, then there is no reason why you wouldn’t enjoy doing both, so you are invited to lace it up and come pub run at the Thirsty Thursday 5K Pub Run Series on Thursdays, December 15th, January 19th and February 16th.
Thirsty Thursday is a monthly social run/walk from a different local watering hole from 6pm on the third Thursday of each month. Participants gather from 5.30pm for sign-in, then participants run or walk 5K at their own pace, socialise and enjoy a drink and prizes. The first 50 people to sign in will receive a free drink.
Upcoming Pub Run locations will be Docksider on Thursday, December 15th, Muse on Thursday, January 19th, and the Grand Finale at a surprise location on Thursday, February 16th. Locations are subject to change.
You can also get rewarded for runnin’ and drinkin’ with the Pub Run Loyalty Program presented by Sportseller Ltd and Asics. The rewards depend upon how many events you run. One time participants will receive a $10 Sportseller Gift Card, three-time participants will receive an Asics premium sock (value $21), six-time participants will receive an Asics clip-on light (value $28), nine-time participants are eligible for an Asics/Sportseller running tee, tank or hat (value $32-$34), and participants who complete 12 consecutive runs are eligible for an Asics running shoe (maximum value $158.50).
Participation is free and at your own risk. A waiver must be completed by each participant.
