Puppet shows, face painting and balloon artists will also be on hand to ensure the young ones are kept entertained during their time at the Play Zone.

film screening CRUEL SUMMER: Film Screening

If this summer heat is too much for you, how about an evening of short film screenings with the fam? You might think ice cream and summer beverages are the best bit but wait, it is actually the films that will give you the chills. The selected short films look at the dark side of summer, from loss to loneliness, heartbreak to horror – something different from the tropical vibe!

While mamas and papas take advantage of open Q&A sessions and key-note speeches, kiddies will make new friends at the play areas and get creative at the arts and craft stations. Don’t miss out this great chance to meet other expats, network and get to know your new city better!
