Korean Arts Festival

Korean dancers in traditional dress smilingThe Korean Culture and Arts Society present a diverse medley of traditional Korean dance and music, in partnership with the Thames Philharmonic Orchestra and local choirs at the Rose Theatre Kingston on 3 October 2021.

This spectacular, colourful event begins at 5pm in the centre of Kingston upon Thames where bystanders will enjoy a 30 minute performance of a traditional Korean Farmer’s dance in the Market Place. From there, the performers will promenade to the Rose.

From 6pm – 7.40pm on the Rose stage, audiences will be entertained by the Choral Society, accompanied by the stirring sounds of Thames Philharmonic Orchestra (there will be a short interval between 6.40pm – 7pm).

Following a second interval from 7.40pm – 8pm,  the finale of the evening includes another traditional dance performance.  With dazzling costumes and precise choreography, this evening promises to be an uplifting experience, offering the audience a spectacular snapshot of the beauty of traditional Korean culture.

We are extremely grateful to the Korean community who continue to be very supportive of Kingston Hospital.  An incredible gesture of generosity resulted in donations in excess of £60,000, along with hot meals provided for the staff, when things were particularly challenging during the pandemic.

Proceeds from this cultural event will be used to create a tranquil and more homely space for those patients who are being cared for in one of the single rooms in our surgical and care of the elderly wards. These are usually patients who are isolated or having learning disabilities, dementia receiving end-of-life-care. The aim is to use the senses of sight, smell and sound to create a calming natural sanctuary, far removed from the clinical hospital environment, to improve the quality of experience for patients and their loved ones.
