TPGC Young@Heart singing band is performing for 50 BBQ Event by Australia in Singapore on 28th Jun (Sun) at Toa Payoh Central at 7.45pm

Organised by Australia in Singapore, Come Jun 28, the heartlands — from Jurong to Tampines — will be alight with 50 Aussie-style barbecues, as part of the Australian High Commission’s celebrations to mark Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, as well as 50 years of friendship between the two nations.

The barbecues will be held at 22 sites across the island, including Toa Payoh Central Community Club, Jem Shopping Mall, Block 516 Tampines Central 7, Punggol East Road and Haji Lane.

About 500 Australian volunteers will be firing up the grills to serve 10,000 beef and lamb steaks which weigh 1,000kg in total, about the weight of an average car.

The event will bring Australians and Singaporeans together “to share our mutual love of good food and a chat”, said Australian High Commissioner Philip Green in a statement announcing the barbecue locations.

The 50 BBQs event is the last of Australia’s 50 Bridges arts and community programme to celebrate SG50. Singaporeans can also take part in the 50 Bridges photo contest where they can submit up to 20 photos of either 50 Walls artworks or a 50 BBQs event, capturing the Australian-Singaporean relationship in a creative way.

They stand to win a pair of return business class tickets to Melbourne.

For more details about the competition and the list of sites for 50 BBQs, visit or the Australia In Singapore Facebook page.

TPGC Young@Heart singingband had been invited by Community Art and Culture Club of Toa Payoh Central CC to perform for 15min at this event. Our timeslot is from 7.45pm to 8pm.
