The Fullerton Hotel Singapore lines up a spectacular nine-day tribute “A Celebration of Our Heritage” for Singapore’s 50th birthday
SINGAPORE – Every night from August 1 to 9, the Fullerton Hotel Singapore treats you to a spectacular visual display entitled “A Celebration of Our Heritage“. This nine-day tribute is a lined up by the hotel to celebrate the nation’s 50th birthday. The 8-minute long music and video extravaganza will offer glimpses of Singapore over the past 50 years, showcasing the various key moments that have taken place at the Fullerton Square, including scenes from the numerous election campaign rallies that took place during Singapore’s development years.

In a significant nod to The Fullerton Hotel’s previous role as Singapore’s General Post Office from 1928 to 1996, much of the visual masterpiece will incorporate colourful stamps that were circulated in Singapore during the last 50 years. People watching the video projection will get a chance to see these stamps ‘come to life’ in large 3D images that will move and dance their way across the hotel’s façade, as the latter is transformed into a stunning theatrical backdrop. Many of these facets will pay tribute to Singapore’s shared heritage – celebrating the nation’s multi-ethnic and multi-cultural identity.
Additionally, viewers can also expect to be taken on a journey where they can see the transformation of Singapore from a new nation into the garden city and global hub that it is today.
“A Celebration of Our Heritage” is produced in collaboration with Hexogon Solution Pte Ltd, the Singaporean technology partner responsible for the outstanding light show at the recent SEA Games Opening Ceremony in Singapore.
Mr Giovanni Viterale, General Manager of The Fullerton Heritage, which comprises The Fullerton Hotel, The Fullerton Bay Hotel, The Fullerton Waterboat House, One Fullerton, Clifford Pier, The Fullerton Pavilion and Customs House, explained, “We’re delighted that we are able to celebrate SG50 with the nation through this video projection light show. We hope that “A Celebration of Our Heritage” will resonate with spectators on each of the nine nights.”
In additional to this nine-day tribute, as part of the National Day Celebrations, spectators in the vicinity of One Fullerton and The Fullerton Bay Hotel can view the parade ‘live’ via LCD screens that will be set up around the bay. There will be fireworks and an aerial display by the Singapore Air Force on 9 August, as part of the National Day Parade (NDP) proceedings at the Padang.
Additional sweet and cooling treats
During the Jubilee Weekend, on 7th and 8th August, from 7.30pm, The Fullerton Hotel will also distribute complimentary kachang putih (roasted or sweetened peanuts or beans traditionally sold in paper cones) and potong ice cream (rectangular popsicles in local flavours such as red bean, yam and durian) at One Fullerton to add to the sense of nostalgia.
