Where To Shop, Eat And Play This Weekend (30 Aug to 1 Sep)

September’s almost upon us, which means it’s time for mooncakes, lanterns and F1 fever. So check out what’s happening this weekend and get ready to rock, because this month’s going to be a rollercoaster of excitement!

1. Walking With Dinosaurs – The Live Experience


Based on the award-winning BBC documentary series, this stage show promises to be a dazzling spectacle for both kids and adults. This production boasts 18 different dinosaurs including the Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus and, of course, the legendary T-Rex, all brought to life via state-of-the-art animatronic technology.

Naturally, given its source material, you can expect the show to be remarkably accurate in recreating its subjects. Unlike certain popular depictions of dinosaurs (we’re looking at you, Jurassic Park), this show draws on the latest findings and research on palaeontology to update its dinosaurs wherever necessary, such as adding feathers to the dinos.

2. City Hall: If Walls Could Talk


Don’t miss the grand opening of this immersive exhibition, dedicated to commemorating the lesser-known parts of our nation’s history. Hosted in the old City Hall building in the National Gallery, this exhibition uses high-tech storytelling to bring the past to life, with highlights such as the swearing-in of Yusof Ishak as our first President and the unveiling of our flag back in 1959. Although the exhibition is here to stay for the next two years, you won’t want to miss this gripping trip through time, so hurry on down!
