Designated Saturday of each month, an exciting line-up of established and up-and-coming Hong Kong musicians will gather at Tai Kwun’s Laundry Steps to offer an afternoon of light-hearted music. Curated by singer-songwriter Vicky Fung, an avid promoter of Cantopop, these Saturday afternoons will showcase the best of Hong Kong’s jazz, pop, independent and world music, where you will revisit and discover the musical talents of our city at the unique heritage site of Tai Kwun.

THEME OF THE WEEK: Songs of Love for Our Children

Do we still remember the imaginations and curiosities we had as kids? The realisation that there is a unique kind of happiness that comes only with childhood often comes after it fades. Through music, through singing, we hear voices of children and walk with them.
