Every first and third 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.
Inspired by the materials, textures and shapes of the Central Police Station compound, the Tai Kwun Store collection presents an array of everyday basics which are made of carefully chosen materials and which reference the colours of the site’s architectural features.
Led by local artist Wong Tin Yan and his instructor team, these workshops give participating families an opportunity to make toys or decorative objects together by recycling scrap wood. Woodworking has long been part of the Tai Kwun story as carpentry was a form of prison labour in the 19th century Victoria Prison. Tai Kwun is also a supporter of upcycling, as the facades of its two new buildings— JC Contemporary and JC Cube — are made from discarded wheel rims.
