With one typhoon almost behind us and two holidays lying directly ahead – forget the rain – it seems like it's going to be clear sailing in Shanghai for the rest of the month. Along with extra days off, there's plenty to keep you eating, laughing and reflecting in the near-future. From the return of food fest Heritage Eats to Unravel’s special show with Lifeline and Shanghai Awakening’s day of health and wellness, mark these upcoming events in your calendars.

Heritage Eats

Now an annual fixture on Shanghai’s food calendar, Heritage Eats returns to The Bund Finance Centre next weekend for a chance to get to know some of the city’s chefs in the tastiest way possible – through their food. This year’s lineup features Andrew Moo and Dan Li (Yaya’s), Victor Vieira (Tomatito), Nat Alexander (Homeslice), Danyi Gao (Shake, Bun Cha Cha) and lots more, with each chef cooking up three hawker-style dishes that represent their cultural backgrounds. Think eats like coffee caramel flan, chorizo hotdogs, tagliatelle with green peppercorn chicken and battered prawns in sweet and sour tamarind sauce. 100RMB will get you six food and drink tickets.

Event details: Heritage by Madison. Sat 25 September. 11am-8pm. 100RMB (six tickets).

Better Together

Get ready to laugh, smile and possibly even cry with the live storytellers at Unravel as the team are linking up with mental health platform Lifeline for an evening of tales centred around the themes of love and understanding – and how we ‘connect, cooperate, support, relate and mediate’ with one another. The evening is part of the Better Together umbrella campaign that’s played host to a number of the events this month which have raised funds for the helpline in their mission to provide emotional support for people across China. 


Tickets go on sale from midday tomorrow with half the proceeds donated to Lifeline. It’s also not too late to submit your stories (free tickets for those who do). Click here for more information.

Event details: location shared with ticket holders. Thursday 30 September. 6.30pm-late. 120RMB (includes a drink).
