This October, join us for a special laid-back autumn Sunday at Freespace Happening! Returning to the stage we have the very popular Le Groupe Electrogène Fanfare Club with an even bigger and better ensemble and promising fans of their anarchic brass band sound an up-beat, fun-filled evening.

The day’s lineup also features Soulmates, Life Was All Silence, Nanyin virtuoso Ewong Tong, and singer-songwriter Jonathan Yang – one of the featured artists on our new Freespace Mixtape Vol. 1 – who will be joining us again, this time with local musician Tomii Chan.

Young visitors are invited to a day of play at the ohmykid’s Playground, a one-of-a-kind adventure space where children can let their imagination run free designing new games and activities and getting creative with recycled materials!

Dog lovers can enjoy some relaxed canine speed-dating at the “Barking Blind Date”, where you can chat with volunteers and staff of the Society for Abandoned Animals and see if you have chemistry with one of their special dogs – all looking for love and ready for a perfect picnic date!

Through the afternoon, the ballerinas from the HKAPA School of Dance will grace our lawns with lively showcases and workshops, where friendly tutors guide you through some easy-to-learn ballet steps.

Plus, you can browse the handicraft stalls at our regular Hoikokdaytan 2046 market and pop-up store, quench your thirst with our very own Freespace Happening inspired “Heroes Beer”, join the literature-themed activities hosted by House of Hong Kong Literature and take part in the Literary Bonsai Workshop.

Come and explore, make new friends and have fun at Freespace Happening on 8 October!
