It’s all about being entertained this weekend, with a shopping sale, music festival and art exhibition.
It’s crazy how fast time flies and we are already into the last two months of 2020.
You might feel like the entire year was made up of quarantines and work-from-home days, but as with the year end festive season coming, there’s plenty of fun things to look forward to!
This weekend promises fun for everyone, especially those who prefer not to coop themselves up at home. Here are five things to do this weekend (Nov 6 to Nov 8):
Indie music festival, Baybeats, is back this weekend!
With COVID-19 measures still in place, the festival will be live-streamed from the Esplanade’s concert hall. What’s special about this is that it will be a two-way livestream where the audience will be projected on the screens as well.
This year’s lineup includes musical group Hanging Up The Moon and hip hop stars TheLionCityBoy featuring Amthakid and Abangsapau. Check out the full schedule here.
The Singapore Discovery Centre (SDC) reopened on Oct 31 with a couple of brand new facilities.
These include a laser tag arena, a multi-sensory theatre, a new cafe and a boardwalk on the lake beside SDC. There is also an escape room-like facility called ‘Black Lake’ where you can role-play as secret agents with your friends to solve puzzles and try to ‘escape’ the room.
Ticket prices start from $24. Find out more here.
Last week, Robinsons announced that it will be closing down in Singapore for good.
The mega retail chain, which has been around for over 160 years, cited changing retail buying patterns and the COVID-19 pandemic as reasons for its impending closure. So if you’re up to scavenge for final deals, this weekend is the time to do so.
Robinsons’ remaining stores are located at The Heeren and Raffles City Shopping Centre.
Feeling hungry? Sentosa’s Grillfest is back this year with its inaugural Home Edition!
You can choose to opt in for a home delivery or make a reservation and dine-in at any of the participating restaurants with a wide selection of gourmet food from Singapore’s leading chefs.
Other highlights at this year’s event include cooking classes, talk shows and flash deals. Find out more here.
Calling all art lovers! Gillman Barracks will be hosting Art After Dark: Above & Beyond, a series of art appreciation programmes over the next two weekends.
The event focuses on inculcating visual literacy and creating close encounters with both local and regional contemporary artists. Part of the lineup include live artmaking, online film screenings, workshops and open studios, artist talks, gallery and docent tours.
