The towering armoured All-Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST) walker has landed in Singapore. Thankfully it is unarmed and fairly safe, so feel free to admire the walker and take plenty of photographs but do refrain from climbing on it. We don’t want to agitate the Galactic Empire now, do we?

Calling all dancers near and far! The dance floor is set for some grooving as Silent Disco Asia takes over the console and spins you the greatest hits off the intergalactic airwaves. Get futuristic with glowing wireless headphones. Participants of the STAR WARS RUN Singapore will have priority entry via race bibs.

Date & Time:
5 & 6 May: 9.00pm – 11.00pm

Singapore’s inaugural STAR WARS RUN kicks off on 6 May at The Meadow. We’re ready to cheer on the runners with squawkers, whistles, party horns, and colourful blowouts. Many have chosen to run on the Light side, still others chose the Dark side. But the really brave ones are those running the 10km competitive route. Are you ready? On your mark, get set, GO!

Date & Time:
6 May: 4.00pm – 11.15pm

Note: Registration is closed
