Esplanade Gala 2018

Esplanade presented the inaugural edition of our fundraising dinner, the Esplanade Gala, on 9 June 2018, Saturday.


Dining on the stage in the magnificent Esplanade Theatre, guests went on an intimate journey to the heart of Esplanade and our people. This site-specific experience showed a side of the theatre which most people would have never seen. The night’s menu featured an exquisite four-course meal put together by our friends from Conrad Centennial Singapore, paired with exciting performances.


Funds raised from the Esplanade Gala will go towards our next stage as a performing arts centre for everyone and help us build a medium-sized theatre along our waterfront. To be completed in 2021, this new theatre will help us support the next generation of Singapore and Asian artists, as they create new works that tell our stories and those of our children and grandchildren. With it, we will also be able to touch even more lives, making the arts more accessible especially to our youths and seniors.
