Director’s Message


Under the theme of 'Singapore, the Great Port City,' the 14th edition of the Singapore Night Festival promises to be a tapestry of experiences and unforgettable memories, as we present to you performances, artworks, tours and many other programmes, all intricately woven with the rich stories of the Bras Basah.Bugis (BBB) precinct and Singapore heritage.
Delve into the tales of the communities that have called this precinct home, and discover the vibrant, diverse coming together of cultures that have thrived here. Witness the transformation of the BBB precinct at night this August as we celebrate Singapore’s history as an international port city.
Many may not be aware that BBB has been featured quite prominently through Singapore’s 700 years as a port city - which has seen, from then to now, the exchange of ideas and cultures - and we hope to pay homage the vital role it played, while encouraging everyone to explore the iconic cultural institutions and museums across the precinct. In the spirit of innovation and partnership, this is the first time that we will be having a presenting sponsor and we are excited to have Samsung onboard, alongside our many festival partners and stakeholders, who will be further enlivening the festival with their invaluable and innovative contributions.
Mark your calendars and be part of this celebration. Come join us at BBB, where excitement and wonder await you. We can't wait to see you there!
