Book lovers, watch your favourite pieces of literature come to life. From the now till the 29 July, the Arts House will be screening films inspired by books. This weekend, follow Hunter S. Thompson’s psychedelic journey across the Southwestern American landscape in FearandLoathingInVegas, whilst PriestofLove gives us a more personal insight to then-infamous author, DH Lawrence.

Weekends are always perfect occasions to “lepak” (chill out in Malay). Lepa(r)k!- MusicinthePark is back for its second season. This year, it’s held at The Promontory @ Marina Bay, on the 21 July. Featuring an exciting line-up including The Great Spy Experiment, In Each Hand a Cutlass and Monster Cat, this is one indie treat not to be missed.

Plants have existed far longer than we have. Take AWalkInAnAncientForest at the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve this Saturday, and you will be introduced to the forest structure, and flora and fauna of Singapore’s only substantial patch of primary forest. As the walk is slightly undulating, it is recommended for children aged 9 and above.

There’s more family fun available at the National Museum. Inspired by Singapore’s varied and colourful culture, ChildrensSeason 2012: IslandTunes-A-Song-And-Dance-Performance is an interactive sing-along session that will delight young and old alike!

Besides Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney was known for his love of jazz. DisneyJazzedUp is a wonderful musical tribute to the film house that thrilled and fascinated audiences for generations with its movies. This Sunday, listen to pepped up versions of well-loved songs such as Under The Sea and You’ve Got A Friend in Me, and you’ll be swinging in no time.
