Falling on the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival is the second grandest festival in China after the Chinese New Year. It takes its name from the fact that it is always celebrated in the middle of the autumn season. The day is also known as the Moon Festival, as at that time of the year the moon is at its roundest and brightest.

The evening will be a social cultural gathering for all Hong Kong Society members and their guests to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. There will be a self service buffet of canapes and wine. Feel free to bring your own non-flammable lanterns. We are also delighted that Noel Ng, Deputy Director-General of the HKETO will attend and give a short update on Hong Kong.

This event would not have been able to happen without the generous support of HKS member Marco Leung who is the host for the evening, he has been very supportive of the society since becoming a member.

THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. Please contact communications@hkas.org.uk or by telephone on 020 7963 9447 if you would like to join the waiting list.
