Let popular local and foreign celebrities croon and serenade you, including Mandy Gaines from the USA and Long Piao Piao and The A-MiAborigine Tribe from Taiwan. At midnight, the streets will resonate and resound with echoes from Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, set against a backdrop of spectacular pyrotechnics lighting up the night skies.

Rd will be closed on Orchard Area

Is there a Count down concert at Orchard Road today?

Christmas Eve Mass Caroling - On 24th December, the crowd at Orchard Road (between Scotts Road and Bideford Road) will be led by singers in a mass caroling session one hour before midnight. Plans are being made to link this mass caroling with two other locations in Singapore, and also to broadcast this event live on radio. For the first time, anyone anywhere in Singapore would be able to join in joyous caroling on Christmas Eve.


I only know of the Grand Christmas Concert on Christmas Day itself. Last year was also on Christmas Day.

Grand Christmas Day Concert - Fast developing into a Singapore Christmas tradition, a Grand Concert is planned for 25th December. Orchard Road will be closed to vehicular traffic from the junctions of Scotts Road and Bideford Road. The floats will be parked on the road in the afternoon for all to come onto the road for close-up views and photoshots.
A grand stage will be constructed across Orchard Road. From 7.30 pm to 10.30 pm, local and foreign artistes and celebrities backed by a choir will clmax the event with a scintillating concert – an event you will not want to miss!

  1. Orchard Road (between Scotts Road and Bideford Road); and

Public bus services affected by the road closures will be diverted from their original routes. Public bus inspectors will be stationed at selected locations to advise commuters on the diversion. Information signs will also be placed at the affected bus-stops.
