The Singapore Heritage Festival (SHF) 2019 will be a special Singapore Bicentennial edition, with themes and programmes that will explore and commemorate this important juncture in our history. This year, the festival will take place over four weekends with events and programmes centred around precincts such as Kampong Gelam and Bedok. Explore the nooks and crannies of these spaces, and uncover their lesser-known stories, along with the fascinating people behind them!
SHF, NHB’s annual signature festival, is a celebration of Singapore’s heritage and culture. Enjoy heritage trails, tours, open houses, and performances at spots around Singapore, and hear hidden tales of our colourful history and heritage. A festival for the people, by the people, SHF seeks to present novel and immersive programmes and experiences in partnership with the community and stakeholders. Through these, the festival hopes to empower these groups to share their stories with the public in a celebration of Singapore’s vibrant cultural heritage.
