Discover traditions and immerse in a feast for the senses at Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre’s Mid-Autumn Yeah!

Beyond the popular folklore of Chang’e and Hou Yi, Mid-Autumn Festival is a celebration of bountiful harvests. This year, the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre invites everyone to reap their own harvest of knowledge and experiences, through its Mid-Autumn Yeah! celebrations on 13 and 14 September 2019. From performances of songs associated with the moon, tea-tasting workshops, to moon-gazing activities, visitors can learn about Mid-Autumn traditions anew through a multi-sensory experience.

A multi-sensory celebration of our cultural heritage

Tales and traditions of the Mid-Autumn Festival are brought to life through a selection of programmes at the Cultural Centre, with something for everyone. As part of a mass-escape activity, visitors can plan The Mooncake Heist to break into the moon vault and lay their hands on the secret recipe of the legendary Divine Mooncake; or put on their thinking hats to crack a traditional Mid-Autumn favourite – lantern riddles!




Visitors can also revel in a night of music at Mid-Autumn Pop Symphony, where powerhouse vocals such as veteran getai singer Xie Jin Shi and his daughter Lindy Xie promise a treat for the ears with refreshed classic hits, accompanied by the Asian Cultural Symphony Orchestra. One can also make a Lunar Tea Date with yIN Harmony over tea as they share the moon’s symbolism to the different ethnic communities through the many Chinese and Malay songs, and Indian dances that wax lyrical about the moon; or Chill Out with Tea where one can learn about traditional tea etiquette!

Visitors can set their sights on the moon and embark on an interplanetary journey to uncover the tales, lore, and science behind it while moon-gazing at the Cultural Centre’s rooftop under the Starry, Starry Night, or through three themed planetarium shows presented by the Science Centre Singapore. Visitors can also learn how to transform their phones into a Virtual-Reality viewer for an even closer look at the moon at Moonwalking. As a sweet end to the weekend, one can join in a hands-on experience to concoct a unique cup of bubble tea – a new twist to traditional tea tasting!

A time for reunion

With a plethora of exciting family-friendly activities to choose from, visitors can gather their loved ones, and re-acquaint themselves with the rich cultural heritage which the Mid-Autumn Festival has to offer. Parents and children can bring the story of Chang’e to life through Puppet Story, a hand puppetry workshop by Paper Monkey Theatre. One can also try their hand at brewing Singapore’s very own Nanyang tea at the Happy Tea workshop or indulge in the free mooncakes and tea at the Makan Station, where they can also buy and dig into local delicacies!

In the spirit of reunion, parents and children can trace their family tree at the Who’s My Fam? Genealogy workshop; challenge one another to make a pouch in the dark at Night Craft Fun; or embark on a Mid-Autumn Movie Marathon with a line-up of local films such as the heart-warming Home Run, and coming-of-age That Girl in a Pinafore. Concluding the night, families can take a slow stroll with lanterns in hand and discover the history of Singapore’s “Wall Street”, or take a family photo with the Jade Rabbit at the Where’s Jade Rabbit? installation by local eco-artist Didier Ng.
