January’s Freespace Happening presents new sounds for a new year!

Mike Orange, guitarist and keyboardist of Chochukmo, departs from his iconic indie rock style to join hands with guest artists to explore instrumental electronica. Adrian Fu collaborates with The Majestic G to tell a story inspired by parallel universes and dreamscapes through jazz-funk, and jazz quartet In One Stroke performs for the first time with performing artist Han Mei creating Chinese folk-music-inspired jazz.

Transforming the Big Circle into an open-mic stage for performers aged below 12, we have ohmymic – a new talent show presented by ohmykids, where you and your family can show off your performance skills with your best singing, dancing or other artistic turn! To keep you warm in case the weather turns chill we also have skateboarding workshops, WE Dance showcases and workshops, and interactive performances of improvised theatre that transform audience members into performers. For visitors with dogs adopted from the Lifelong Animal Protection Charity, there is a LAP Get-together re-union where lucky visitors have the chance to receive a special gift!

Don’t miss the new “Writing on Leaves - a Wander in the Park” – a guided journey through the Nursery Park led by the House of Hong Kong Literature and featuring poems inspired by different plants. They will also hold a poetry-inspired workshop where you can make your own pot inscribed with poetry. If you would like to learn more about the characteristics of the trees and plants in the Nursery Park, remember to sign up for our regular tree tour and workshop.

You can also visit our regular ohmykids Market to look for unusual hand-made items and try your luck at the different game booths, browse the Hoikokdaytan 2046 handicraft market, or take part in our DIY craft workshops.

Before you come, don’t forget to download our updated Freespace Happening App that lets you check out what’s on at our handicraft markets and listen to great music any time want on the new Music Player!
