This summer, local poet and storyteller Yuen Che-hung – affectionately known as Uncle Hung – returns to Freespace with an interactive storytelling workshop for children aged four to nine.

Joined by local musicians Chan Wai-fat and Lau Chi-bun, Uncle Hung leads young participants into the magical world of imagination and play. Through live music and fun conversations, children are encouraged to make up and tell their own stories and to co-create a poem with Uncle Hung.

After the workshop, participants may also be invited to join Uncle Hung and the musicians and read the poems they have created in a special performance. Details to be announced soon.
