Deepening our Kampung Spirit

Officially launched by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on 4 June 2016, this year’s Light Up theme is “Deepening our Kampung Spirit” and aims to foster the kampung spirit among Singapore’s multi-cultural community.

Over the month-long Light Up, the public can admire the lights from 7 pm daily.

The Light Up designs have been inspired by batik patterns through the years. The batik weave motif reflects patterns found in basketry and symbolises a close-knit community.

Also at the Light Up is a life-sized traditional Kampung-style pavilion inspired by traditional Malay long houses and other interactive displays such as a six metre-tall Malay gong and a moon and star exhibit.

Over the month of June, cultural performances will take place from Friday to Sunday at the Kampung House.
