In a surprising development, a citywide festival will be held 12-19 November to celebrate and showcase the cuisine, culture, music and fashion of Belgium, but there is no mention of Belgian beer.
Maybe Hong Kong has had its fill of Belgian beer and the never-ending festivals that seem to pop up monthly, but we highly doubt it.
The inaugural “Belgium Week in Hong Kong” is being held to coincide with the birthday of the country’s king on 15 November.
Visitors to the week-long festival will enjoy food by Michelin-starred Belgian guest chef Loic Villers and an Exhibition of Belgian Art and Artists.
A photographic exhibition, titled “Hong Kong and Islands”, will showcase the work of Belgian photographer Jean-Pierre Ruelle 12-13 November at the Lightstage Gallery.
There will also be a Belgium Business Seminar for 200 business leaders from both Belgium and Hong Kong, among a selection of other Belgian-themed events.
KEE Club in Central is the epicentre of the festival, with other events dotted around Wan Chai and Sheung Wan.
