Here's a list of activities and happenings for families that we felt you might be keen to take part in this week!
Sometimes we receive press releases, sometimes we came across the information somewhere, and sometimes one of you sends the information to us. But when we come across something exciting and interesting for families, you can be sure we will be sharing it with you!
Here's what we have this week!
Online NAC-ExxonMobil Concert in the Gardens
Having a picnic while enjoying the regular concerts at Singapore Botanic Gardens was a favourite for the family. However, these concerts have not happened for awhile due to the ongoing COVID situation. Thus we are excited to share that there will be an online edition of the NAC-ExxonMobil Concert in the Gardens that families can attend to enjoy an intimate jazz evening from the comfort of your home!
We suggest having a home picnic while listening to the concert too! The concert is part of the Singapore Botanic Gardens Heritage Festival 2021 where other online and onsite activities for families will be happening too.
Pop-Up Trampoline Park @ Forum The Shopping Mall
Venue: Forum The Shopping Mall, B1
Date: 1 Oct - 31 Dec 2021
Fees: $15 per pax per entry
A self-service trampoline park has opened at Forum The Shopping Mall. While we have not been, we have seen pictures of the play area, and it looked pretty exciting for the little ones. Apart from trampolines, there appears to be a mini-obstacle course for the kids to play at too.
The admission is just $15 per entry (no re-entry allowed), so the kids can go ahead and jump for as long as they like. Just remember to use the washroom before heading in!
