Dear all!

sg_paanas is organising a screening of the Quartetto Concert!


Poster by presentiment_xx, winner of our poster design contest.

Date: 17 Dec 2016
Time: 1.30-5.00pm (doors open at 1.15pm)
Venue: Screening Room at 12 Ann Siang Road Singapore 069692, level 3. The nearest MRT stations are Telok Ayer, Chinatown and Tanjong Pagar.
Cost (to cover venue rental): $10 per person (to be collected in cash on the day itself)

If you need help getting to the venue, we will bring you there from Chinatown MRT. Please wait at the passenger service centre at 1pm and approach girls wearing the red Quartetto concert T-shirt. We will depart from Chinatown MRT at 1.10pm sharp so don't be late!

If you're coming on your own, directions can be found here (using Google Maps).

Or follow our step-by-step guide on how to get there from Chinatown MRT.

1. Exit the MRT station through Exit A.
2. Walk straight through the bazaar until you reach the main road (South Bridge Road).
3. Turn right and walk past Sri Mariamman Temple and along some shophouses, until you reach a pedestrian crossing.
4. Cross South Bridge Road at the pedestrian crossing.
5. Turn right and walk along some shophouses until you see a small path marked by a road sign that says Ann Siang Road.
6. Turn left into the path and walk up the slope until you reach a Y-junction.
7. Turn right at the junction and you should see a shophouse with the sign Screening Room.


Screening Room is located on the 3rd floor of a converted shophouse.


Enter the black door to get to the lift that will bring you to the 3rd floor. Alternatively, enter the white door to climb the stairs to the 3rd floor.


To bring: A towel is a must! NEWS towel is preferred, but any (black or white) towel of sports towel size is fine. Other concert essentials like penlight and uchiwa are optional but it'll be great if you could bring them along too ^^
Please note that consumption of outside food and drinks is not allowed in the room.

We will be screening the Dome concert, including the MC.

In addition to an afternoon of fun with fellow NEWS fans and the boys themselves, you can also look forward to door gifts and attractive lucky dip prizes!

Lucky dip prizes: A Hikari no Shizuku/Touch clear file and 4 solo member Quartetto concert photosets are up for grabs!


Door gift: Towel bears! (1 towel bear per attendee. Limited quantities of each colour available.)


The earlier you reach the venue, the higher your chances of winning a lucky dip prize! Also, higher the chances of you getting a towel bear of your desired colour.

We still have slots available, so walk-ins are welcome! We are also holding a donation drive for Aceh earthquake relief, so please come with a giving heart.
