What’s Happening in Sydney this December


This summer’s chock-full of fun in Sydney!


Shakespeare in the Park

Date: 11-30 December
Location: Bella Vista Farm Park, Bella Vista

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Or rather, a summer’s evening, because that’s when you’ll get the chance to enjoy the oh-so-cultured scenes of Shakespeare in the Park. Set at Bella Vista Farm Park in the warm December twilight, you’ll be treated to almost three weeks of delightful performances. With productions of classics including The Importance of Being Earnest and Love’s Labour’s Lost, brush up on your Old English with the Sport For Jove Theatre Company in the beautiful great outdoors. Be sure to come dressed up for the period-dress garden party on the lawns beforehand! Find out more »


The Finders Keepers Spring Summer Markets

Date: 11-13 December
Location: Australian Technology Park, Eveleigh

Finders keepers, losers weepers! Except here at the Finders Keepers Spring Summer Markets, there are no losers! Featuring over 200 beautifully curated stalls by the some of the craftiest folk from Sydney and around Australia, it’s highly likely that everyone who turns up will go home with a treasure or two. Or three, or four, or… you don’t want to know how far we’ll go. This isn’t any ordinary market, though, but rather a gathering of hand-picked artists and designers who will be shamelessly showing off their unique creations. And timed perfectly for getting in a spot of Christmas pressie shopping. Find out more »


Ben and Jerry’s Open Air Cinema

Date: Until 12 December
Location: Cadigal Green, The University of Sydney

Whoever invented the outdoor cinema was a bloody genius. Pack the blanket and popcorn and relax in the warm summer air with the friends and family on the magical Cadigal Green in the heart of Sydney University. And did someone say ice-cream? Good old Ben and Jerry know a thing or two about that as well. Come along on a Sunday to what they’re calling ‘Sundae Sessions’ (get it?) where, along with the film, you’ll be treated to live music and FREE, yes FREE Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Worth the price of admission alone, we think. Find out more »


Carols in the Domain

Date: 19 December
Location: The Domain

There’s a reason that Carols in the Domain is Christmas classic and a yearly tradition for every Sydneysider celebrating the festive season. Because it’s AWESOME. Grab the ankle-biters and head on down to the Domain for the annual carols extravaganza, where you’ll catch some of the biggest names in Australian and international music and entertainment in one absolute cracker of a performance. Be sure to bring the rug and picnic basket, book your spot early, and don’t forget to pick up one of the Domain candle bags filled with goodies, with proceeds going to The Salvation Army. Rumour has it that if you’ve been good, you might even catch a glimpse of Santa! Find out more »
