What’s On This Weekend: 8 to 10 March
With the arts coming right to your doorstep this weekend, you can easily catch a free mini musical on your way to lunch at Bedok Town Square, or stop by an eco-friendly arts festival when you are downtown.

This escape room experience, with a literary bent and targeted at children, will, as with other similar games, have participants digging around for clues and solving puzzles. But as a bonus, participants might also leave the game with newfound interest in learning and reading. This event is conducted in Mandarin. Details here.
Classical ballet can be riotous fun and the Singapore Dance Theatre’s performance of the well-loved Don Quixote promises to leave audiences dazzled by the dancers’ virtuosic performance and exquisite costumes. Details here.
