Just like that, the shortest month of the year (i.e. February) bids us adieu. But the month of love ain't got nothing on the month of Pancake Day, International Women's Day, St Patrick's Day and Earth Hour, all happening in March. Plus, school's out for the little rugrats so expect a wave of kid-friendly events around town, including Disney On Ice – perfect for the whole brood.

Other than that, flex your vocal cords as The Kooks headlines Garden Beats Festival and Maroon 5 is back to serve you all their greatest hits. Laugh out loud with RuPaul's Drag Race superstar Bianca Del Rio and award-winning funnyman Jim Gaffigan. Step into strangers' homes in the name of art via Passport or explore the world of design at the Urban Design Festival. The list goes on, but here are our top 15.

If last year’s art walkabout around Emerald Hill got you hungry for more untold tales and history, you’re in luck as OH! Open House returns with another exciting art-slash-heritage trail – Passport. Taking things indoors this time around, visitors are invited into the homes of strangers across the island. Each crib displays its unique interpretation of identity, citizenship and belonging. Six artists are paired with six residents to create six separate art experiences where guests are welcomed to interact with the artworks that decked the halls.
