Freespace Happening returns to Nursery Park on 11 September!

Music will play a large part in this month’s Freespace Happening, drawing together folk-rock acts including Sheng-xiang & Band (Taiwan) and Toy Captain (Chiu Chow) as well as local musicians in a celebration of world cultures.  Street musician Hakgwai will return with his mix of indigenous instruments and electronic synths while Windpipe Chinese Music Ensemble serenades you with a mixture of traditional and modern Chinese repertoire. Also from Hong Kong are the rhythmic Gregmel & Africana Band and the French brass band Le Groupe Électrogène Fanfare Club.

Book lovers can make your own DIY Literary Kite in a workshop with The House of Hong Kong Literature, share your love of words with local artists in a Book Talk, or simply cross a book at our Reading on the Grass library. 

For those who are interested in dance, join WE Dance, our monthly dance showcases and workshops with local dance groups.

We will also have a new ohmykids Market run by children aged 12 and below.  There is fun for kids and adults alike with a mass paper plane launching game ‘Let’s Fly’.

Youth Outreach will be back with their monthly Hoikokdaytan2046, a combination of handicraft market, music and workshops.

So, bring your picnic mats and join us for a relaxing Sunday afternoon at the Nursery Park.
