Nighttime music to celebrate 150th anniversary of Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Garden

Celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens with music and singing performances this Saturday!
The Leisure and Cultural Services Department will hold an Evening Musical Performance at the Fountain Terrace Garden of the HKZBG from 4.30pm to 6pm on November 6, where the new image of the HKZBG under the new brand theme "Urban Forest Living as One" will be displayed.

There will also be music performances of the String Ensemble, Chinese Percussion Ensemble, Pipa Ensemble, Saxophone Quartet and Youth Choir of the Music Office, as well as singing performances by STARS Academy graduates and a sand painting art performance.

Free admission is offered to the public and entry to the event will start at 3.30pm on a first-come-first-served basis.

The audience may sit on the lawn area around the stage to enjoy various performances starting from 4pm. However, eating or drinking in the audience zone is prohibited.

Attendance at the event will be capped and crowd management measures including issuing tags will be implemented if necessary. All participants are required to wear masks, take body temperature, and scan the LeaveHomeSafe QR code.

Persons aged below 12, aged 65 or above and those with disabilities who find using the app difficult will be exempted from the requirement. Instead, they will have to fill in a form to register their name, the first four digits or letters of their identification document, their contact number and the date and time of their visit.

Exempted persons are also required to present relevant identification documents for verification at the request of the staff during registration. The staff will also verify the contact numbers by making phone calls.

A series of other celebratory activities will also be held at the HKZBG, including guided visits, thematic talks on greening and conservation and game booths, for public participation from 2pm to 6pm on that day. Click here for more details.
