Community gala to be held

December 5, 2023

The Government announced today that it will organise a large-scale outdoor concert, Build a Better Community gala, at the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD)’s Wonderland between 7pm and 10pm on December 9.


The concert aims to further promote the benefits brought by the improved district governance system and the reformed District Councils, as well as the importance of active participation in the District Council Election for building a better community.


The gala will be broadcast live jointly by Television Broadcasts, ViuTV, HOY TV, Phoenix Satellite Television, Radio Television Hong Kong, Metro Broadcast and Commercial Radio.


At the same time, satellite sites will be set up at HarbourChill in Wan Chai and the Amphitheatre at Sha Tin Park. In addition to telecasting the programme from the gala in West Kowloon, there will also be live performances and game booths for public enjoyment.


The Home Affairs Department will distribute a total of about 4,000 free tickets at 20 Home Affairs Enquiry Centres for the gala in West Kowloon from 1pm tomorrow.


People may also obtain tickets for the satellite sites in the specific districts at the Wan Chai Home Affairs Enquiry Centre and the Sha Tin Home Affairs Enquiry Centre.


About 300 tickets are available for each satellite site for public collection.


The tickets are free and each person may obtain a maximum of two tickets for each venue while stocks last. There will be no assigned seating as seats are available on a first come, first served basis.


Furthermore, the Tourism Board will present the Winter Harbourfront Pyrotechnics at 8pm on December 9 at the waters off the harbourside of WKCD Art Park.


At 9pm, a drone show comprising over 1,200 drones will be staged at the waters southeast of the M+ museum of the WKCD.


Those interested may view the two performances along the promenade of the WKCD Art Park. Such performances will also be broadcast live at the West Kowloon gala and the two satellite sites.
