Description

“Why Commemorate 1819?” is the Bicentennial event discussing the very reason for the Bicentennial. It will be held on 31st August 2019, Saturday, at Tanglin Trust School, our venue sponsor.


Our event is held in support of the Singapore Bicentennial Office.

This event is open to everyone and will have an educational focus. We will be exploring the life history of Sir Stamford Raffles and his relevance to the Singapore Story, the importance of British-Singapore friendship and what it means for us today.

We are featuring three great speakers who will share their perspectives on this. They are:

Daniel Hannan, a Member of European Parliament and author of the best-selling book How Britain Invented Freedom. He is a great speaker who will discuss British history, its impact on the world, and its place in the world today.


Daniel Hannan

Professor Razeen Sally, a political economist from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy researching the global economy and world trade. He will share about the importance of the Singapore-British economic relationship and what it means for us today.
