Sketchwalk to celebrate Singapore HeritageFest 2024


Urban Sketchers Singapore x Capitol Singapore
Hello sketchers! This month we have TWO special collaboration sketchwalks with Perennial Holdings at CHIJMES (18 May) and the Capitol (25 May) in conjunction with the Singapore HeritageFest 2024 (https://www.sgheritagefest.gov.sg/?gad_source=1).
For the second sketchwalk on 25 May, we will be visiting Capitol Singapore (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitol_Singapore). The front facade of the Capitol Building anchors the junction of Stamford Road and North Bridge Road across from Raffles Place. Once known as the Namazie Mansions, it now houses the Capitol Kempinski Hotel (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitol_Building,_Singapore). Right behind it is the old Capitol Theatre, one of the grandest theatres in Singapore in the 1930s.
Time: 9.30am - 12:30pm
Nearest MRT station: City Hall (NS25/EW13)
Meeting point: Outdoor Plaza, Capitol Singapore
Address: 13 Stamford Rd, Singapore 178905
