This weekend is one for those into arts.
November is here and while it isn’t exactly the festive season yet, there are still plenty of fun things to do!
From new food ventures to different cultural arts events, you can definitely start the month on a good note.
Here are five things to do this weekend (Nov 5 to Nov 7):
The annual Singapore Writers Festival (SWF) returns this weekend with over 140 exciting hybrid programmes.
With the theme “Guilty Pleasures”, the event aims to challenge festival-goers to reconsider what they know as literary content and explore unexpected ways of storytelling. Highlights include a hybrid tour ‘Singapore Crimes: A Tour’ and programmes for the little ones too.
Courts Nojima’s second flagship store in Singapore will officially open at The Heeren this weekend on Nov 6.
Spanning 189,000 square feet across six floors, it will feature an esports gaming corner and a robotic vacuum experiential area. It will also house the largest TV range display in Singapore.
