Octoburst! 2016 – A Children’s Festival

Octoburst 2016 Little Red Riding Hood
Sharing is caring!

The annual Octoburst! – A Children’s Festival at Esplanade is back and will take place from 7 to 9 October.

This year, we invite the young to embark on an adventure with stories from all corners of the imagination. From delightful performances to hands-on workshops, Octoburst! is the perfect festival to encourage play and family fun while immersing in a world of terrific tales and creative endeavours.

There is a diverse range of activities and performances that children can look forward to. These include:


The Secret Life of Suitcases

A funny and enchanting puppet show in which Larry, an office worker who likes things neat and orderly, finds his world turned upside down by a fantastical flying suitcase that takes him on a journey further than he ever thought possible.

Introduction to the Nutcracker

The Singapore Dance Theatre condenses this classic ballet into an hour-long special for young audiences, introducing them to well-loved characters like Clara, the Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy and immersing them in the magical world of dance.
