5. Christmas Virtual Escape Room - Santa's Hard Disk Broke

Virtual Escape Room

Can You Escape have put together a highly immersive virtual escape room... and it’s Christmas themed! The story line goes as follows:

It’s Christmas Eve, Santa and his elves are ready to deliver presents all around the world. Santa realizes that he has a problem with his Hard Disk, and all the addresses for the delivery system are inaccessible. Christmas is ruined unless he can access his Hard Disk Recovery Software from his laptop that would solve the problem. However, clever Santa, designed many layers of puzzles and security measures to ensure that nobody else could get access to the recovery system and he has now forgotten everything that he created.

He is desperate and commissions you, as his security officer to find a way to access this Hard Disk Recovery Software in order to restore all addresses and save Christmas. This is an urgent matter! You need to access the Software as quickly as possible! Not succeeding would mean no Christmas presents for anyone this year! It’s already been a pretty bad year; you cannot let this happen!

You can enjoy this for a limited time only

4. Winter Ale and Panettone

Ale & Pannetone

Can you name a better combination than this? This Christmas, Lord Chambray is once again inviting guests to their extraordinary taproom to enjoy a lovely slice of panettone together with a pint of their rich and decisively warming brew, the Honey Winter Ale. If you happen to find yourself in Gozo, we would definitely recommend stopping by their brewery to indulge in the Christmas spirit, the Lord Chambray way. The event is taking place in the afternoons between 2pm and 6pm Saturdays and Sundays before Christmas.

This Christmas Teatru Manoel is featuring a timely classic, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, a co-production by Teatru Manoel and Masquerade. This well-loved festive tale portrays a cold-hearted businessman, Ebenezer Scrooge, who learns to rediscover himself and to love his neighbour.

Ian Moore’s new adaptation of Dickens’ classic tale is one of the most loved short stories ever written. It is spooky, funny, beautiful, and a triumphant declaration that even the hardest heart can melt. It is performed by four outstanding local actors, namely Paul Portelli, Tina Rizzo, Joseph Zammit and Melissa Mercieca, who have come together to tell the story and play all the parts

The performances will be held at various times between the 18th and the 20th December. So, don’t miss out and book your tickets by clicking here!

Ħal Ġinġer is a gingerbread house building competition with a twist. With the pandemic making it more difficult for people to come together in the conventional way, Archi+ has organized the perfect family-oriented activity to help ignite that creative spark within you and to help spend some festive time with your loved ones, baking a delicious treat.

Everyone can take part in Ħal Ġinġer, but for a chance to win cool prizes, you will need to send photos of your creations throughout the month of December. The event is free, but we all encourage you to donate whatever you can afford to Inspire Malta. Archi+ have also pledged to make an additional donation to this worthwhile cause, for every submission uploaded.
