A cultural festival billed as ‘Kingston Welcomes Korea’ is planned for this August in the Royal Borough, celebrating our links with Korea. It will combine an arts festival with a trade fair and an environmental debate.
Planned arts events include concerts to be held at the All Saints Church, an exhibition of Korean contemporary art, and performing arts displays at the Rose Theatre.
The trade fair, hosted at the Rose Theatre will be called called ‘Jangmadang’, the Korean word for market place, and British companies seeking opportunities in Korea will be able to meet with Korean businesses looking to invest in Britain.
A Green Debate with six different sessions will be held during the course of the festival in the Council Chamber at the Guildhall.
