Standard Chartered Arts in the Park 2022

Art Park


This December, travel back in time to nineteenth-century Victorian England for a festive Dickensian Christmas!


Standard Chartered Arts in the Park – Hong Kong’s largest outdoor youth arts carnival – returns on 3 and 4 December (Saturday and Sunday) with outdoor showcases and performances, all inspired by four wonderful works by British writer Charles Dickens: Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield and Great Expectations. The programme also includes a week-long programme of online activities. Join us for a spectacular Dickensian Christmas cheer!


The two-day weekend carnival in the West Kowloon Cultural District Art Park features a full programme of visual arts and performing arts activities. Events include Hong Kong’s largest original Giant Puppet and Dramatic Costume Showcase, eleven interactive art stalls, stage performances, storytelling theatre, storytelling, a capella performances, African drum jams, circus workshops, large-scale installations featuring 9,000 artworks, and a giant puppet photo area for capturing fun moments with family and friends. All events are free and open to participants of all ages.


At 2:30pm on 3 and 4 December 2022, the highly anticipated Giant Puppet and Dramatic Costume Showcase takes place in the Art Park. Created and led by six professional artists and 60 local secondary students, the showcase features 11 four-metre-tall giant puppets – each inspired by a character from the works of Charles Dickens. The giant characters include the miserly businessman Scrooge from A Christmas Carol and the cunning master thief Fagin from Oliver Twist. Also in the showcase are 400 students and performing groups sharing over 170 vibrant creative costumes and artworks. Bring a camera and be ready to be amazed!


Standard Chartered Arts in the Park is an accredited event celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
