The inaugural Chinese Culture Festival (CCF) will be held from June to September, presenting various performing arts programmes and extension activities for the public and visitors to experience the broad and profound Chinese culture. 

Addressing the CCF's programme parade today, Secretary for Culture, Sports & Tourism Kevin Yeung noted that Hong Kong has the advantages of having a unique blend of Eastern and Western influences and a vast international network, adding that the festival can drive visitor arrivals and related business growth.

An array of programmes in the first CCF includes exemplary local arts projects recognised by the China National Arts Fund, performing arts programmes from arts and cultural organisations, film screenings, exhibitions and talks.

The CCF will also introduce the “Chinese Culture for All: A Special Performance Series” and school tours to open new arenas for students to experience Chinese culture.

The festival’s opening programme is a dance drama, “Five Stars Rising in the East”, performed by the Beijing Dance Drama & Opera, while the Chinese Opera Festival - a signature project of the Leisure & Cultural Services Department - will be a core part of the CCF from this year.

The CCF also designates a focal city each year, with Shanghai as this year’s focus. Three speculator events will be presented by the Shanghai Jingju Theatre Company, Shanghai Chinese Orchestra and Shanghai Museum to showcase the cultural charm of Shanghai styles.

Tickets for the festival programmes will go on sale from tomorrow. Call 2268 7321, 2268 7323 or 2268 7325 for enquiries.
