Asian Civilisations Museum 09 May 2017 - 14 May 2017 Free

SHF Map

Explore the nooks and crannies of our island home, and uncover the lesser known stories of Singapore's shared spaces and way of life. This April and May, we are proud to be part of Singapore Heritage Festival 2017!

What can I look forward to at SHF 2017?
Take part in heritage trails, tours, open houses, and performances at spots all over Singapore as part of the festival, and hear the hidden tales of our colourful history and heritage. This year, the SHF team is excited to introduce SHF Takes Over!, which, amongst "taking over" areas such as Bukit Pasoh, gives you the chance to check out unexplored, or inaccessible places.

What can I do at ACM or Singapore River for SHF2017?
Check out this link to the Singapore Heritage Festival website for exciting programmes, including a pop-up hawker centre, film screenings and performances at ACM!

 

Enjoy hawker fare by the river? The closing weekend of the Singapore Heritage Festival (SHF) at the Asian Civilisations Museum celebrates this with a fun-filled weekend of Singaporeans’ favourite hawker dishes, and memories of dining by the river. This weekend festival sparks conversations about the food we love, and explores the relationships that are built around them, which continue to bond generations of Singaporeans. Anchored by a special installation inspired by hawker centres of the past in the vicinity, such as the Empress Place Food Centre, SHF Takes Over Singapore River will also feature hawkers serving some of Singaporeans’ favourite hawker food, alongside exhibitions, outdoor film screenings, and performances. So, come “take over” the space, lepak with us, and relive shared memories of hawker fare by our beloved Singapore River.
