This time of the year, there seems to be an endless parade of festive things to do.

But if you wish to sing your lungs out and dance the night away with your best pals, we’ve got you covered as well.

Singapore is well known as a City in a Garden, and there’s always something to marvel about around our lush landscape. This year, the ever-popular Bangkok’s trendy lifestyle market returned for its third edition here with a mythical theme – Eden. Art meets nature at Artbox 2019, with bigger space, more regional acts and multi-sensory installations.

If you’ve been stuck in the office most of the time, how about making your urban escape to the far north of Singapore this weekend? Bring some cash, download Fave app and not to forget, a portable fan. It’s going to a humid day-out, and you deserve some icy, decadent sweet treats.

Fans of theatre, rejoice! Homegrown theatre WILD RICE is marking its grand opening finale with an epic musical that will thrill both young and old. As we go through the daily grind, it can sometimes feel like there is less and less to discover, what happens to the childlike wonder? We travel to ignite a sense of adventure and bravery within us, and this is exactly like Peter Pan. The classic story is now set in present-day Singapore. Meet Wendy and her brothers that would rather be anywhere else than their stuffy bedroom in their neighbourhood Serangoon Gardens. There will be fairies, mermaids and pirates! We can’t wait to catch this beautiful production!
