There is a new literary aspect whereby several well-known cat lovers in different fields - such as Goh Boon Teck, Karen Tan, Alfian Sa'at, Ginette Chittick, Irene Ang and Tung Soo Hua - have contributed original prose, poems and short stories that are dedicated or inspired by cats! Proceeds raised go to the ‘Cat Welfare Society’ www.catwelfare.org

Note: Due to F1, the Old Parliament Lane (road in front of Arts House) is closed so drivers can park at Parliament House (behind Arts House which is accessible by Parliament Place from North Bridge Road). Alternatively, visitors can park at Funan Mall, Boat Quay or Fullerton Hotel and then walk over to The Arts House which is near the Sir Stamford Raffles statue/ landing point. See map below for directions:
