2019 Kingston Korea Festival Poster_A4_F


The highlight of this year’s Harvest Fest, a part of Totally Thames,

is a community dance project the Red Umbrella led by The Move, a professional dance company from South Korea. Choreographer S Yoon will create a dance programme in collaboration with local dancers, volunteers and audience to perform together on the day.


In addition, following the success of last year, the WIKIM (World Institute of Kimchi) are

coming back to demonstrate how to make Vegan Kimchi. This year, Dae An, a Buddhist

Chef will demonstrate how to make Vegan Kimchi.

Residents and visitors will be invited to participate in a free Kimchi making workshop, as well as get an opportunity to take part in craft sessions (Lotus lantern making, mural, spin painting and mask making) and trying on traditional Korean costumes as part of the event.


There are various food stalls to sell mouth watering Korean foods and Taekwondo

Demonstrations and KPOP Live performances. Furthermore, there are fundraising activities and events to support local causes. Kingston Korea Festival will be a unique and exciting community event and KBCE would like to welcome everyone to take part and experience Korean culture. It is fun, family friendly and free for everyone! It is truly a family oriented community festival for everyone to enjoy.
