ESEA Culture Festival - Prelude: The 8th Harvest Fest 2023

  • Main Auditorium
  • 13 November 2022, 7:30pm

The Korean British Cultural Exchange (KBCE) is celebrating the 7th Anniversary of the Kingston Korea Festival 2022 with the launch of the ESEA (East & Southeast Asian) culture festival.

The ESEA community share the exact date for the Harvest Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, regardless of its name: Chuseok (Korea), Tsukimi (Japan), Tết Trung Thu (Vietnam) or Moon Festival (China). Hence, next year, KBCE will collaborate with Kingston's ESEA (East & Southeast Asian) communities to celebrate the bringing together of these cultures and reach out to local communities about authentic experiences or traditions they may never know about.

The Programme includes traditional music and dance performances, storytelling and traditional clothing fashion show from ESEA communities, and KPOP performances. On the day, there will be a dance premiere performance by SY Park and emerging artists from Kingston to commemorate the late Queen Elizabeth II. There will be stalls to serve Korean street food and a Korean language experience on the 2nd Floor.
