Our 4-day work week has just flown by and this weekend is all about culture and food, two of our favourite things here at Sassy HQ! Relax and listen to jazz on the beach at Coastes, shop sustainably at Green Project Farmer’s Market and enjoy outdoor cinema at Films At The Fort. With so much happening this weekend, you best start freeing up some calendar space, girls!
Back for another year, Films At The Fort returns to Fort Canning Park and we are bursting at the seams with excitement. There’s nothing we like better than sitting out in the great outdoors, under the stars with a drink in hand and watching a fab flick with friends and family. With food and drinks provided by Jones the Grocer, My Private Kitchen and Casillero Del Diablo, our tummies are rumbling with anticipation. There’s a fab lineup of blockbusters, golden oldies and international arthouse films making this unique outdoor cinema event, one you don’t want to miss!
