The Christmas Sundays - a little celebration

The Christmas Sundays (Ziemassvētku Svētdienis) is a little celebration that will take place for four Sundays.

While the whole world is slowly starting to prepare to the winter’s most anticipated celebration, this is your chance to start it early – in the centre of the city, in an inspiring atmosphere and going on for an entire month. Concerts and plays for your spirit, games and workshops, food and mulled wine for your belly, Christmas fair – for gifts and joy. In cooperation with Rimi and Children’s Hospital Foundation every Sunday the Good Deed Stop will offer everyone to take part in a charity campaign “Angels over Latvia” that will bring the most important gift to many children and their parents – a chance for health and happiness.

Every Sunday will offer plays and concerts, and workshops and activities for both children and adults. The first Sunday will take place on 8 December with the TV host Kristīne Garklāva and actor and musician Kristaps Rasims, who will officially open the Good Thoughts Station of the charity campaign “Engels Over Latvia” organised by Rimi and Children’s Hospital Foundation. Every Sunday here one can learn more about charity campaigns and their importance. Also there will be book readings and meet&greet session with the authors, and a cartoon afternoon.

On 8 December the family programme offers a play “Poop And Spring” by director Janis Znotiņš. The play was nominated to an award “Spēlmaņu nakts” in 2015/2016 season as a play of the year for children and teenagers. And there will be a guest performance by Valmiera theatre, playing “Staburaga berni”. Musical adventures ensured by the publishing house “Upe tuviem un tāliem” with a release of a record “Reiz circeņiem bij’ mūzikas veikaliņš”. In the evening the audience is welcome to enjoy a concert by Goran Gora, who offers a festive concert programme.

Christmas Sundays are open from 11.00 till 20.00. Entrance is free the whole day but concert tickets are available for just 5 euros. Free entrance for children under 6, when accompanied by their parents. Concert starts at 18.30. Tickets available at
