Pay a visit to the Home Team Festival 2023 from 24 to 26 November and discover how the men and women from the Ministry of Home Affairs and agencies like the Singapore Police Force, Singapore Civil Defence Force and Immigration & Checkpoints Authority are keeping us safe.
The Home Team Festival 2023 is a chance to experience first-hand the work that the Home Team does. It is taking place at Singapore EXPO Hall 4 and the event is free for all to attend.
This year, the Home Team Festival 2023 looks super-theatrical with dramatic lighting all around. And there are so many hands on activities for families, kids and adults.
Home Team Festival 2023 Highlights
HOLIDAY IDEAS: Discover the Best Things To Do in December
SANTA'S TOY FACTORY: Festive Workshops, Christmas Jingles & a Chance to Win a Car!
The last Home Team Festival was held back in 2019, so it has been a good four years since this festival has been held.
This time around, the Home Team Festival 2023 features exhibits across four thematic zones and you can expect a fun time learning about the Home Team Guardians and what they do.
The four thematic zones are:
- Red Zone: #Home Team Story
- Blue Zone: Connecting with the Home Team Guardians
- Purple Zone: Seizing the Future
- Yellow Zone: Be part of the Home Team Story
Red Zone: #Home Team Story
Experience an immersive theatre presentation at the Red Zone. See for yourself the Home Team officers in action and discover the bravery and resolve of Home Team officers in keeping Singapore safe and secure.
Blue Zone: Connecting with the Home Team Guardians
Get hands-on at the Home Team Festival 2023’s Blue Zone.
Here, visitors will be able to view the latest equipment and technology used by officers, as well as the ever-popular vehicle displays.
You can even interact with a robotic dog.
The Blue Zone is also where you will be able to find the Shooting Gallery. Those who are at least 1.2 metres tall will be able to learn how to handle a real weapon at the shooting range.
There is something satisfying about hearing the ping of the targets once they have been hit.
Then be entertained by various performances and demonstrations. Watch Home Team officers go through the paces and meet the dogs from the police K-9 unit.
There will also be games with prizes to be won.
Purple Zone: Seizing the Future
Look ahead to the future and discover how the Home Team capabilities are also transforming to stay ever relevant at a holographic theatre experience. You can also browse various exhibitions at this zone of the Home Team Festival 2023.
Yellow Zone: Be Part of the Home Team Story
Find out how you can also play your part in contributing towards Singapore’s safety and security.
Not only can you speak with the Home Team officers about volunteering but there is The HOPE Cafe run by Yellow Ribbon Singapore.
A highlight for families with young children is the Kids Zone.
The Kiddy Rides, where kids can operate mini vehicles dressed up with Singapore Police Force or Singapore Civil Defence Force livery, is very popular.
Kids can look forward to role playing as different Home Team Officers and, in doing so, learn about their different roles. Other activities for kids at the Home Team Festival 2023 include a shooting range, identity card making, picture colouring and more.
