Don’t miss, this week!

Stumped for things to do after knocking off? You shouldn’t be in this little vibrant city of ours! We bring you the best of what not to miss during the period of August 23 to 27.


Causeway Exchange Festival

How well do you know our neighbors? Challenge yourself by coming down to this brand new festival that boasts of the very best of Malaysia’s most original, quirkiest and inspirational artists and productions in homegrown theatre, film and visual arts all happening here in our little red dot!

Find out everything you need to know about Causeway Exchange with our guide here. Our absolute must-see? Funnymen Monti and Logi , of course!

From Thursday to Sunday, August 26 to 31 only, at the Arts House.

Chestnuts 3-D

Chestnuts is back! They say laughter is the best medicine (and we agree) so don’t miss out on the glorious parodies of Full Monty, Lady Gaga, Karate Kid, National Day Rally and many, many more by the inimitable Jonathan and his wacky bunch of looneys Rodney Oliveiro plus newcomers Judee Tan and Dwayne Lau.

Until September 4, at the Raffles Hotel. Tickets at $35 and $50.

Haute Tension screening

After the comedy, we think it’s time for some intellectual stimulation of a different sort. We’ll definitely be down to catch this thriller that involves a girl trying desperately to race against time to save her friend from a psychotic killer. Is everything all that it seems? Watch to find out!

Tuesday August 24 only, at the Alliance Francaise. Tickets at $7.20.

6th Singapore Short Film Festival

Whetted your appetite for more films but can’t find the time to sit through a full length feature? Treat yourself to a visual bonanza with Singapore’s only dedicated international short film festival. They’re like the movies – only bite-sized!

Until September 5, at the Substation. Tickets at $7 (standard).

Enchanted Harps concert

How cool is a harp? If you’re an aficionado of this instrument of the angels, definitely do NOT pass up on this opportunity to catch renowned harp players Yu Hsin Huang and Gulnara Mashurova as they mesmerize with compositions that are in the style of traditions from as far back as when Queen Victoria walked the earth.

Monday August 23 only, at the NAFA Campus. Tickets at $10.
