The Fullerton Hotel sets the stage for a roving performance centred on its illustrious past

Heritage revival

If the walls at The Fullerton Hotel could speak, it'll have stories aplenty to share. Erected in 1928, the neoclassical grand dame has played host to government ministries, functioned as a post office, and seen the mouth of the Singapore River retreat from its doorstep to the Esplanade as we know it today. 

Standing in its elegant lobby, it's hard to imagine that some of the most seminal events in Singapore history have unfolded right under these soaring roofs. Former prime minister of Singapore, Goh Chok Tong, launched his civil service career here in the 1960s, while Fullerton Square played host to fiery election rallies.

It seems only fitting that this iconic landmark continues to pay tribute to its history by using the hotel itself as a stage to celebrate the past. On 29 April, 6 May, and 13 May, The Fullerton Love Story Tour will see registered guests interacting with thespians Edward Choy and Isabelle Chiam as the duo spins a love story set against key sites in the hotel. Ever visited the Presidential Suite at The Fullerton Hotel? The tour will take you there. Along the way, the hotel's resident tour guide sets the scene with insights into the building's storied past. 

To wrap up the performance and tour, participants will settle down at The Courtyard to tuck into sweet treats created by executive pastry chef Enrico Pezzelato. We recommend the Enchanted Garden, which sees meringue mushrooms artfully plated with pistachio sponge 'moss' and chocolate rocks. 

The Fullerton Love Story Tour takes place from 8-11pm on 29 April, 6 May, and 13 May 2017. Visit The Fullerton Hotel for more information or book your tickets at Peatix
