From 28 Apr-14 May, the Singapore Heritage Festival will allow visitors to explore Singapore’s lesser-known stories through a specially curated line-up of programs and activities.
In case you were wondering about the price tag, almost all of the programs are free and open to public. And if you don’t have time to fully explore the entire programme (because there are more than 110 activities lined up), we picked out six highlights that are not to be missed:
1. Memories Of The Hill
Ever wondered what it was like being in a DJ recording studio? Well now is your chance!
Visit the film studios at the iconic Caldecott Broadcast Studio just before they move to Mediapolis at one-north. Try your hand at making a song dedication to your loved one, or experience what it is like being in a studio during recording.
Don’t forget to stop by the 50 Years of Television: An Exhibition on your way out to revisit various milestones in the history of television broadcasting.
A little bit out of the way for you? There are also free shuttle buses from nearby MRT stations like Bishan and from the Macritchie Reservoir Carpark.
