November’s Freespace Happening transports you back in time to the golden era of Hong Kong!
As our star act of the evening, we have local pop diva Elisa Chan giving a guest performance with The 5422 Collective re-arranging Cantopop favourites for a big band. The lineup also features rockabilly with the Boogie Playboys, 70s funk with WAT DE FUNK, plus Lil' Ashes, REBEARTH and more with nostalgic tunes to match our old-school theme.
The young, and young at heart, can hit the dance floor to a remix popular children’s songs at the ohmykids Disco Noon D for KIDS! – where you can also borrow nostalgic dress-up gear to complete the mood.
The House of Hong Kong Literature will take you down memory lane with a literature charade, where you can team up and guess the names of authors and work as they appear on the big TV. You can also dip into a good book at Reading on the Grass and hear local artists talk about inspiring literary experiences at our regular Book Talk.
To tempt you onto your feet, we also have WE Dance showcases and workshops led by local dance partners. Plus, you can browse the handicraft stalls at our regular ohmykids Market and Hoikokdaytan2046 market, or join a creative DIY workshop.
Last but not least, our Tree Guides will share stories about the trees and plants in the Nursery Park in our free Tree Tours and workshops.
So, bring your family, friends and pets and come along to enjoy the nostalgic sounds of old Hong Kong!
