Udderbelly off to Hong Kong for two-month festival

30th Jul 2015

Underbelly is delighted to announce that our unique performance venue, Udderbelly, will make its international debut on Hong Kong’s iconic waterfront skyline this December as part of the second year of the hugely successful Great European Carnival with a bellyful of exciting, eclectic and affordable entertainment.

Following the success of both Udderbelly Festival in London and Udderbelly’s now iconic status at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Udderbelly Festival Hong Kong will mark Underbelly’s first foray into the live entertainment market in Asia.

Udderbelly Festival Hong Kong will run from 4th December 2015 - 14th February 2016, with a diverse programme of shows and entertainment to enjoy during the festive holidays over Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Chinese New Year.

The festival programme will include some of the very best shows and artists from the Edinburgh Fringe and UK, alongside a programme of local talent from Hong Kong and local language performances. Just like on London’s Southbank and in Edinburgh, audiences can expect to see circus, dance, music and family shows, as well as comedy and cabaret over the weekends and holiday period.

Programme information and tickets will go on sale at the end of August.

Udderbelly Festival Hong Kong will take up temporary residence on the Central Harbourfront Event Space, nestled in the Central business district of Hong Kong with its amazing metropolitan skyline as its backdrop. 

Udderbelly is about fun, informality and accessibility and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Hong Kong is going to fall in love with the purple cow in just the same way that Londoners and visitors to the fringe have!
