Highlights include a refreshingly satisfying Cold Roast Pork, made with slices of slow-roasted pork collar given a lift with house-pickled daikon, rocket leaves and dots of mustard aioli, addictive Crispy Fried Pig Ears, and a Giant Pretzel stuffed with tangy red cabbage and their own Farmer’s Sausage. And of course, what’s Oktoberfest without beer? Brotzeit will be the only restaurant in Singapore importing and serving the Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier beer!

The Singapore Book Council, which organises the Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC), has rescheduled the 11th edition of AFCC to 3 to 4 October 2020, due to the evolving Covid-19 outbreak.

But, in response to the situation, AFCC had decided to scale down the festival to two days and is making parts of the festival digital.
As a prelude to AFCC, the Book Council will be organising the popular Book Illustrators Gallery (BIG), an exhibition that showcases the best illustrations from Asian picture books from 1–30 June 2020 at the National Library Building.
