The Affordable Art Fair in Singapore kicks off its fifth edition this weekend. Art lovers may look forward to seeing artworks from more than 950 artists this year. A record 108 galleries are showcasing works priced between S$100 and S$10,000 at the F1 Pit Building. 

Featuring music from Abba, ‘Mamma Mia!’ tells the story of a young woman Sophie, brought up on a Greek island by her mother Donna, and never knowing the identity of her father – until she finds a diary that suggests three possible fathers. With a stellar cast and crew from London, the musical features 28 Abba hits including ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Í have A Dream’, ‘The Winner Takes It All’ and ‘Super Trouper’. 

Our favourite classic Chinese story gets the Wild Rice treatment in ‘Monkey Goes West’. Join Chua Enlai, Siti Khalijah and Sugie Phua as they retell the tale of the Monkey King, Pigsy and Sandy in a Singapore setting. 

This holiday season, 'Mystica' is back at the Night Safari for its fourth annual run – the boldest and its most glamorous one yet. Every Friday and Saturday from 21 November to 20 December, visitors will be greeted by performers dressed up in costumes and various mascots as they take the nocturnal walking trail.

Sundown Festival returns for its sixth edition this Saturday. Catch Asian artistes Chang Chen-yue from Taiwan, S.O.S from Indonesia, Kate Tsui from Hong Kong, Kanika Kapoor from India, Pupil (featuring Ely Buedia) from the Philippines and Singapore talents Jeremy Teng and ShiGGa Shay on stage. There will also be street food from various regional Asian countries sold on the festival grounds.

Singapore’s very own sneaker convention Sole Superior is back this Saturday at Zouk. The entire club complex will transform into a sneakerhead’s playground featuring their favourite brands. Keep a lookout for exclusive product launches and limited items by Flesh Imp, FIN, and art collective Tell Your Children.
