Freespace Happening moves in an exciting new musical direction this month with the brass ensemble of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, marking the first in a series of collaborations between HK Phil and West Kowloon, and presenting a fun mix of familiar classic, jazz and musical pieces. 

The music continues throughout the afternoon with mellow acoustic performances by local indie bands EighteenTwentytwo, Merry go-round, Blaster, and Cow Head … plus a Ukulele Surprise that promises to be a unique and mesmerizing instrumental treat!

For those of you wishing to be part of the musical entertainment we are delighted to present six of Luke Jerram’s Play Me I’m Yours street pianos, that are currently touring the city, and where you can show off your talent. 

Would-be ninja jugglers should head to the South Lawn to watch Kendama demonstrations by experts from local Kendama creators Pak Fuk and put your coordination skills to the test with basic tricks.

Craft fans can get hands-on at our DIY henna design and flower lightbox workshops, and browse the craft market for locally hand-made pieces.

And, of course, keep your eyes peeled for Mr. Funny, who will be providing family fun around the park.

So, don’t miss out – bring your blankets and picnic baskets, and join us for a relaxed afternoon in one of the most beautiful green spaces in the city.
