Tales From The Palace @ KTGA Winter Fest - Fifth Grand Bazaar
Kick The Gong Around is coming back to celebrate the year-end holiday spirit on the 5th and 6th of December, at Hubindao Xintiandi in the heart of the city.
Visitors will find themselves being mysteriously transported into the whimsical world of Tales From The Palace - a realm inspired by a blend of mist, crystals and snowflakes. Interactive art installations will also invite visitors to play and be part of the story.
In the Palace, guests can awaken their inner holiday spirit as they wander through the rooms to find gifts for each other. They will learn how to make presents, lis ten to story telling, taste wonderful artisanal foods, sip heart-warming drinks and dance away to music and performances.
Winter calls for comfort foods, hot chocolate, mulled wines, and a lot of sweets. All of which can be enjoyed in between checking out the hidden treasures amongst the bazaar sellers, dancing to live performances or having fun at the workshops, lectures and art interactions curated for this special event.
