This year’s Singapore Night Festival was held last weekend and the weekend before on Friday and Saturday night. It’s a yearly free event that takes places in multiple locations around the Bras Basah and Bugis area with various shows and installations at venues including the National Museum, School Of The Arts, Singapore Management University, Singapore Art Museum and their vicinities.
Singapore Night Festival 2016 was the ninth year that it’s been held and it celebrated the passion of creation with the theme of Inventions and Innovation. The National Museum had LED figures leaping across it’s walls and an acrobatic theatre show set inside a stunning circular home called The Wheel House.
There were also other art exhibits and performances both inside the museum and on it’s grounds.
The area outside the Peranakan Museum on Armenian Street had various performances and live music as well as stalls selling food, drinks and Peranakan style trinkets.
There was projection art on the exterior of the Singapore Art Museum and a Festival Village in the grounds of Singapore Management University with food stalls, a flea market and a stage where you could watch local and international musicians perform.
There were also some paid performances at the Singapore Night Festival as well as talks and workshops which could be pre-booked.
Overall the Singapore Night Festival is a great event to soak up some of the art and culture that Singapore has to offer, there’s lots to see, do and eat! 🙂 It’s also an interesting event to bring the kids to with plenty of immersive activities. Looking forward to next year’s event!
