Here are the events for July that I know of so far. I’m expecting that the exhibition at Asia House entitled A Soldier’s Tale could be the highlight of the month.

As you may have noticed, I can’t keep up with the number of Korean Language Meetups and K-pop parties, so I have dropped those from this list. Let me know what I’ve missed.

Talks

  • There’s a range of talks and events linked to the Moon Jar exhibition at the KCC:

  1. Hi there, I believe that there is a Korean Food Festival happening in New Malden on the 13th of July, in the garden of The Fountain pub.

    I’ve only just found your website but it’s a shame you’ve decided to drop the language and kpop meetups from your list since that’s how I came across it, but I understand that it’s difficult to keep up with them so no worries, thanks for the great work already, it’s very helpful to a budding K-phile! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the info about the Food Fest Arthur. Yes, it’s usually around this time of year, but it’s always difficult getting details. A date for the diary next month is the big Korean Festival all day at the Fairfield Recreation Ground in Kingston.
