September in Singapore has become synonymous with Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, but due to the pandemic, its engines have been turned off once again in 2021. Nonetheless, there's plenty of online and offline events to occupy this month's schedule – including a new go-kart arena where you can do your best impression of Lewis Hamilton. Fill your tank with mooncakes and light the lanterns too, as Mid-Autumn Festival is also observed this month.

RECOMMENDED: The definitive guide on things to do in Singapore

  • Attractions
  • Jurong West

No Formula 1? No problem. Get into the driver's seat yourself at the newly opened Karting Arena @ Jurong. This second venue (the first being at Bukit Timah) boasts a new 700 metre track with 11 technical runs to master. Power down the track at speeds of up to 30 km/h or 50 km/h (with a valid drivers' license) in the Karting Arena's new fleet of BirelArt petroleum-powered go-karts. Grab your friends and head down to the races. 

  • Things to do
  • Classes and workshops
  • Bedok

Create some mesmerising and totally unique art at Spin Paint House. From the same people behind Splat Paint House, this new studio at Kaki Bukit Place is where you can let your creativity run free – on custom-built spin tables, pendulum swings and trapezes. Choose your colours and your tools – gravity does the rest of the work!

  • Art
  • Marina Bay

ArtScience Museum is celebrating its 10th birthday with Orchestral Manoeuvresfeaturing over 32 artists and composers from eight countries who explore sound through sculpture, installation and music. Curated by ArtScience Museum, this exhibition features some of the world’s leading artists whose explorations of the sonic landscape encourage visitors to listen more closely to the sounds around us. Expect sound art projects, early music notation, experimental scores, noise-making sculptures, video installations and contemporary artworks. One of the key highlights is a presentation of The Forty Part Motet by Janet Cardiff, which will be showing for the first time in Southeast Asia.
