The annual Octoburst! – A Children’s Festival is back! This year, in celebration of Children’s Day, Esplanade invites youths to embark on an adventure with stories from across the world. This year will see children and their families having fun in a series of digital programmes, both physical and digital. Swing by on October 8, 2021 (Friday) and immerse yourself in the festivities, with specially curated performances and activities taking place over the weekend.
Go on a self-guided trail around Esplanade, uncover bits of trivia about the building as well as information about the various art works there. You can also watch some plays – your chance to get sneak peeks of plays that will be be shown in 2022. If you can’t make it to Esplanade, join in the fun, from anywhere you are – there’s a slew of digital offerings in store for you. Armed with your enchanted stones, you could be working alongside the Stony Gardener to bring colour back to the now-grey Precious Planet. You might also find yourself dancing and singing to familiar PLAYtime! tunes in the comfort of home. From catchy tunes to stories that will transport you to enchanted places, the Festival has got you covered. Check out the latest line-up here!
