These were the noteworthy programmes held during the duration of the festival that added diversity and richness, which may include main programmes presented by NHB, as well as programmes that were initiated and driven by BBB stakeholders.

The National Museum of Singapore charmed festival goers with outdoor screenings of all time local favourites that included P. Ramlee’s Seniman Bujang Lapok and Sumpah Orang Minyak, Royston Tan’s 881 and Glen Goei’s Forever Fever.

Public Art Installations
(
Various Artists
)

To encourage the public to explore the precinct, there were 4 public art installations by award-winning local artists, of which three were specifically commissioned by the National Museum of Singapore for the festival - The Tree by FARM, The Crystal City by Donna Ong and the Golden House Book by Jeremy Hiah. The fourth installation was The Beginning by Sun Yu-Li. Of notable mention is The Tree by FARM. Inspired by the National Museum’s own banyan tree, the installation is a series of interlocking frames and hanging microphones that detect ambient sounds and alter the lighting nature of the installation.

“With the first Night Festival, we’ve validated the possibilities of the precinct and demonstrated how arts and culture could enliven the nightlife for Singapore. This time round, with denser programming, there will be even more activities in the two nights."
