If you think traditional museums are boring, Singapore’s “mini museums” could change your mind. Street Corner Heritage Galleries have now launched in Katong-Joo Chiat, allowing visitors to discover the history behind six foodie heritage businesses in the area, each with a story of resilience, innovation and intergenerational piety. From one of Singapore’s oldest popiah makers, to the family producing Peranakan classics, pay them a visit to find out more.

Art Walkabout returns

OH! Open House’s signature art walkabout is back, this time uncovering the layers of Kampong Gelam’s history. Did you know that Kampong Gelam was once the literary capital of the Malay World and the place where the literati came to exchange ideas, discuss and debate? OH! Kampong Gelam will feature 11 artworks by local and international artists highlighting this interesting past. Mr Ibrahim Tahir, founder of Wardah Books in Kampong Gelam since 2002, says, “Not many people recall this history. We hope to remind people of this legacy by working with OH! for this art walkabout.”
30 March – 12 May

Don’t just look – book!

The Death of Singapore is a kooky play set in the Lion City. Before any theatre show hits the stage here, the script must first be sent to the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA) for approval. This play covers what happens when a playwright and IMDA officer come to a disagreement, as well as looks into how theatre in SG has been regulated over the years.
14 – 30 March.

Trevor Noah, comedian and the “best host ever” according to Taylor Swift (apparently), is coming to tickle our funny bones. His Off The Record Tour takes place on 3, 4 & 5 June, and as it’s the first time the South African comedian has performed in SG since 2019, we predict a riot!

Award-winning musical Miss Saigon is coming to Sands Theatre from 15 August. This beautiful story about love, loss and resilience follows the relationship between a young Vietnamese woman and her American G.I. love interest. A bit of a blub is practically guaranteed.
