For one evening only, get set for Club Street and Ann Siang Hill to be transformed into The Giving Street where it will be taken over by a carnival of music, munchies and magic – all in the spirit of giving! Watch parkour ninjas show off their craft, catch circus acts on the street, design and build a giant Jenga, craft your own jewellery, and even get your holiday shopping sorted while supporting non-profits, ground-up movements and social enterprises.
Discover more about issues and causes around us and find out how you can give back to help Singapore become a #CityofGood.
Date: 1 December 2018, Saturday
Time: 7 pm to 10.30 pm
Location: Club St & Ann Siang Hill
