Top 10 things to do in Singapore in October

Chilly weather, shorter days and fall foliage? None of that for us. Thankfully, summer is all year-round here in sunny Singapore, and with plenty of sun, comes plenty of exciting things to do. Fill your October calendar with some tennis action at the WTA finals, vino tastings at Wine Fiesta, a high-kicking Kinky Boots musical and more. But of course, October isn't completed without spooky Halloween parties and the ultimate Halloween Horror Nights scare fare.

Loco for locavore: we talk to local farmers feeding the movement

Growing up in Singapore, chances are, you’ve been to a local farm on a school excursion. You arrive in an air-conditioned bus, complain about the stench, pay for feed, pat some cuddly animals and leave the same way you came after an hour or two. But these farms have more to offer. An increasing number of chefs – from those running Michelin-starred restaurants to those behind casual eateries – are stocking their kitchens with produce grown in Singapore, driving the locavore movement here. We chat with four local producers to uncover their stories, struggles and the future of farming. RECOMMENDED: The best farms in Singapore and the best sustainable restaurants in Singapore

The UK's rising princess of pop is dropping by for a special one-off show in Singapore.

Expect an energetic performance set to the tracklist of her album Speak Your Mind, including chart-toppers like Alarm, Ciao Adios and 2002, as well as hard-hitting collaborations like Friends with Marshmello, Rockabye with Clean Bandit and Sean Paul, and Don't Leave Me Alone with David Guetta.
