1. Christmas Cheers

The QFT is cranking the Christmas fun all the way up to 11 this week, with a feast of holiday classics, old and new. White Christmas, Miracle on 24th Street, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and not to forget the modern classic, Elf. Because the best way to spreadChristmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.

2. Shop till you drop

There’s still a week to go, but with the chaos and panic buying on show in every shop you would think that Santa is expected tonight. Come the weekend we’ll all be in the same boat, as we realise we’ve forgotten to get a few gifts, have run out of wrapping paper and didn’t get the right ingredients for the perfect Christmas feast. But relax, there’s always next year.

3. Classic Christmas

If it is all a bit too chaotic around the shops, you’ll need something soothing to help you unwind. And the Ulster Orchestra have just the right lunchtime event for that. A Box Of Festive Delights will take place at 1pm tomorrow and will feature Debussy’s Children’s Corner, Strauss’ Träumerei am Kamin fromIntermezzo and Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker.

4. May in December

After a number of major stumbles, the Brexit negotiations managed to stumble on to stage 2, even if there is a little bit of uncertainty as to how binding the agreements made to date will be. But Theresa May still cant catch a break, and the lost vote in Parliament last week highlights how precarious her position is. The last PMQs of the year are unlikely to be filled with Christmas Cheer for May.

5. Charm offensive

Meanwhile, relations between the DUP and the Irish Government are not in good shape, with senior DUP MPs taking exception with almost every utterance made by Simon Coveney and Leo Varadkar in recent weeks. But with the focus turning back to Stormont, there is a clear need for the tensions to be lowered considerably.

6. Glen & Friends

Glen Hansard rounds off his Christmas gigs tonight with the final show at Vicar Street. The Frames and Swell Season frontman has a new solo album, Between Two Shores, coming out in January, and will take to the stage again in January for the special Shane MacGowan 60th birthday event in the National Concert Hall. But for tonight you can expect the usual charm of the Dublin man, with special guests, plenty of craic and a few classic cover versions.

7. Twas the night before Christmas . . .

Next Sunday brings peak excitement and anticipation for children all over. With lists all completed, checked once and twice, carrots set out for the reindeers, milk and cookies (or something a little bit stronger) for Santa, early to bed with one eye open incase a sleigh can be spotted in the sky. From all at MWA, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
