What's On in Singapore in March

Updated: 23 March 2017
March is one of few months in Singapore that has no public holidays, meaning that everyone is looking for fun things to do in the evenings after work. Luckily, from a toy art exhibition and design week to ending the month with one of the world’s biggest bands, there is no shortage of things to do this month in Singapore.
