Things To Do This Weekend (28 – 30 October)

We’re heading in to our last weeks of October – gear up for Halloween with our list of halloween events. For the faint-hearted, there are still some Halloween-themed events that will not induce a panic attack, as well as exhibitions and art shows to keep you entertained.

1. Nightmare on Clarke Street


Don’t worry, you won’t run into Freddy Krueger here, but you might meet some zombies on the streets. In the post zombie apocalypse-themed event, there two scare stations, the “Abandoned Hotel”, and “Bloody Butcher Shop” for the braver crowd. If you’re not down to be frightened, enjoy the live music and performances and head to the pop-up Highlander bar for specially concocted Halloween booze.  Also available are face painters and an airbrush tattoo artist to make your get-up extra special. Look out for special deals and themed parties at many outlets around Clarke Quay.

5. Last Weeks With Rochor


Come together to commemorate the iconic Rochor Centre – for the last time before it is demolished – through a photo exhibition organised by students from Nanyang Technological University’s (NTU) Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI). The exhibition will provide insight into the lives of shopkeepers and residents, many of whom have lived and worked in the estate for over 30 years. It will also showcase the lives of four families as they move out of Rochor Centre as well as items and memorabilia from their years in the estate. There will be old school games like chapteh and pick-up sticks, as well as a photo-hunt that encourages the public to capture moments with the iconic state.

Date: 29 – 30 October 2016
Venue: Rochor Centre
1 Rochor Road
Singapore 180001
Time: 4PM – 10PM

6. Power Records by Kult


This is the last weekend to head over to Kult Gallery to relive some old school magic by digging through crates of vinyls. The gallery has been transformed into a record store and will be selling vinyls and record players alongside holding some fringe events (which have since passed).  A throwback exhibition would be incomplete without era-inspired art like favourite hits from the UK Top 40 Countdown in the 80s made into soda pop bottles, and installations inspired by David Bowie.

Date: Ongoing till 31 October 2016
Venue: Kult Gallery
11 Upper Wilkie Rd
Blk C2-5 Emily Hill
Singapore 228120
Time: Monday – Friday 11AM – 7PM, Saturday & Sunday by appointment only
