London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival provides an excellent opportunity to experience Chinese culture in the British capital and is the biggest event of its kind in Europe.
Throughout the day, the spectacular action out on the water will be provided by more than 40 competing club, corporate and amateur teams. Drama unfolds as novices do battle with some of the UK’s greatest paddlers, as well as the elements, to take home 6 cups.
On land, the event’s South East Asian food festival will represent the culinary tastes of each country in the region while entertainment including live music and martial arts displays will be provided on the East West Festival stage, showcasing new artists from the East and West, with traditional Chinese lion dancing proceeding the ‘dotting of the eyes ceremony’ to launch the event.
Cost: Free of Charge
