Sublime Galleria is all set to present a super grand Christmas Carnival. The carnival is being held from 3-7 pm on Saturday – 10 December 2016 at The Collection, UB City. The Carnival aims to celebrate the spirit of giving by involving children and adults alike.
With face painting and hair braiding, selfie stands with Santa, workshops on dancing and a show by a Bangalore-based rap and rock band, Transitpoint, the Carnival promises to be a delight for everyone across all age groups.
Additionally, children from ages 8-15 are being given the opportunity to turn entrepreneurs and manage their own operations from end-to-end, with 12 stalls being provided to them. They will sell their own creations – anything from jewelry to food – and will personally hand over 10% of their cash sales to Dream a Dream. There will also be a stall by Hoopsters Club, an online platform for children to express their opinions and showcase their talents.
Commenting on the event, Uzma Irfan – Director, Prestige Group, said, “It gives me great pleasure to invite everyone to one of Bangalore’s most fun-filled Christmas Carnivals. By allowing children to have their own stalls, we are providing them with an opportunity to build their business skills while sensitizing them to less privileged communities. In addition to an evening of fun and entertainment, by associating with ‘Dream a Dream’, we also hope to empower the vulnerable and give them the platform they deserve. I encourage everyone to attend the Carnival and make a difference while having a great time.”
The lineup of entertainment will be as follows:
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm: Workshop by Zealers Studio, known for mixing a variety of dance forms into one energy-packed session
04:00 pm – 05:00 PM: Music by DJ Anirudh
4:30 pm – 7:30 pm: A group of carolers will spread the Christmas spirit by singing at different spots around The Collection, UB City.
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm: Rap band Transitpoint, which will perform a mix of Christmas carols and their own compositions. CDs from their new album, Hayyath, will also be sold at the Carnival.
The beautiful interiors of The Collection, UB City will be transformed to reflect this theme, with the lighting of the Christmas tree at 6:30 pm. Additionally, the bridge on the second floor of the mall will display a collection of sketches, portraits and landscapes by a young and extremely talented self-taught artist, Priyanka Muthuraman. A recent graduate of architecture, Priyanka believes in creating art from old materials, preserving the beauty of the old while also adding something fresh to it.
All proceeds from the Carnival will go towards Dream a Dream, a registered, charitable trust empowering children and young people from vulnerable backgrounds to overcome adversity and flourish in the 21stcentury using a creative life skills approach.
