Singapore is a nation made up of not one but many islands - more than 40, in fact, and they are scattered around the Straits of Singapore and Johor.

Recognising and remembering the role these islands played in the country's history is the theme of this year's Singapore HeritageFest, now in its 11th edition.

The 10-day festival, titled Our Islands, Our Home, begins next Friday and will run until July 27.

It is the biggest HeritageFest yet, with about 40 partners helping organiser National Heritage Board to create a diverse line-up of more than 60 programmes, including talks, workshops and exhibitions. There are also 42 tours, more than double the 20-odd offered last year.
