Free things to do this weekend

For a truly rewarding weekend, do something ‘good’. We rounded up a list of feel-good, do-good activities you can do in Singapore. Totally free to try, and will leave you feeling like a million bucks.

Take a look at the donations of other do-gooders at The Donors Gallery at The National Library. This was set up to display a selection personal heritage collections donated to the library, and in the hope that in inspires you to donate yours too.

Cutting-edge art gallery Vue Privée and DOPE.SG have come up with a pop-up art experience called Unnecessarily Well Made. Transforming itself into a creative space reminiscent of a 20th century salon the gallery promises to amuse and inspire with carefully curated art pieces alongside a traditional European-inspired bar serving Glenmorangie's finest.

Listen to some jazz by the bay at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands as Jazz band – LIQUID play their spectacular tunes while you window shop. 

If that’s not enough, the Maritime Experiential Museum & Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa hosts jazz nights every Friday and Saturday. Sway to cool jazz, soulful blues and samba bossa nova at the Fish & Crab Shack.

Get one with nature with a visual feast of tropical plants and nearly 20 species of native butterflies - The Butterfly Garden at Hort Park allows visitors to get up close to observe pupae transform into adult butterflies before they take their maiden flight.

Did you know its Curry Day? A weeklong celebration of curry as part of Singapore’s heritage in food, art and community is on at Velocity, Novena. Highlights include a spice pounding competition, spice art competition, a curry crimping workshop and obviously, curry-themed food stalls. (18 August, 11am-9pm, Velocity Mall)
