Here are the events for September.
We are at the start of the eighth lunar month, which means that Chuseok is approaching. Chuseok this year falls on 14 September. If you’re in Korea, enjoy your time sitting in a traffic jam on your way back to your home town. In London and nearby there are three opportunities, if not exactly to experience a Chuseok like you would back home, but at least to get together and do Korean-type things. The choices:
