Festivals & Series

There’s something for everyone at Esplanade.

Happening now


Explore different facets of the performing arts or discover diverse cultures through the festivals that take place at Esplanade over specific time periods annually. At festivals, we present a range of events, from original works by Singapore artists to acclaimed productions by international acts, adding to the vibrancy of the arts scene in Singapore.


Our programme series happen all year round, featuring works by Singapore and international artists. We hope these programmes continue to catalyse the development of dance, music, theatre and other art forms in Singapore. It also means that there’s always something happening at the arts centre.

Free Programmes

We believe that the arts is for everyone and as a not-for-profit organisation, we make affordable performances, talks, workshops and more. This means there are close to 3,000 performances every year, and about 70% of these are free.


We’re not alone! We actively collaborate with other organisations and independent arts groups to increase and diversify our arts offerings.
