As the weather starts to cool down, Freespace Happening keeps the temperature up at the Nursery Park! On stage, the line-up features Hong Kong’s Argentinian Tango band Cafe 852, math rock band milos, the Wong Way Down Jazz Symphony, Subyub Lee and pianist KJ Wong.

Share your passion for words with local musicians at our Poetry Music Jam, where a selection of Cantonese poems collected through an online open call will be reinterpreted with live music. You can also dip into a good book at Reading on the Grass, join the Writing on Leaves - a Wander in the Park guided tour and read poems inspired by the different plants in the Nursery Park, and try your luck at the Literature Gachapon capsule vending machines and take home a small, poem-inspired charm.

To tempt you onto your feet, we also have our WE Dance showcases and workshops where tutors and young dancers of K&B Dance Company will help you learn fun, simple Latin dance steps. Plus, you can browse the handicraft stalls at our regular Hoikokdaytan 2046 and pop-up store, quench your thirst with our very own Freespace Happening inspired Heroes Beer, or join the HK Brewcraft team and learn about the ancient art of brewing mead.

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