How does catching a film at a drive-in cinema reminiscent of 1970s Jurong sound to you? What about soaking in the old-meets-new charms of Jalan Besar? From 6 to 22 April, the Singapore Heritage Festival (SHF) returns for its 15th edition that offers all that, and many more over three weekends. Discover the lesser known aspect of our little red dot, experiences places and stories anew, and enjoy our tangible and intangible heritage. More than 120 programmes and activities will take place across key locations this year — Jurong, Jalan Besar, Chinatown, Bras Basah.Bugis and Toa Payoh.
Here are some of the activities you can look forward to this year:
Toa Payoh (21 to 22 April)
Over at Toa Payoh, more specifically Lorong 6, an orange mythical creature sits majestically against the tide of time. The iconic dragon playground will, for the first time, be transformed into a carnival ground featuring a dynamic LED dragon dance performance, outdoor movie screenings, a classic vintage car boot flea, as well as well as an assortment of popular local hawker delights.
