Don’t miss this spectacular presentation of traditional Korean music and dance at the Rose Theatre Kingston on ㅣSaturday 4 September, 6pm. With one performance only, all proceeds are in support of Kingston Hospital.

Diverse and rich, traditional Korean music and dance continues to evolve from the influence of ordinary people and takes the audience on an emotional journey from sorrow and despair to excitement and delight. Captivating and colourful, this unique showcase will dazzle with beautiful costumes, exquisite music and precision movement.

This performance is presented by some of Korean’s leading professional dance stars and musicians, some of whom have flown in specially to perform at this London venue.

It is with huge thanks to our local Korean community who are producing this performance to raise funds for Kingston Hospital and whose support, both financially and through gifts-in-kind, has been unremitting through the pandemic and beyond.


Running times:

VIP drinks for Premium ticket holders – 5-6pm, with CEO of RBK Ian Thomas, the mayor of RBK, the Chief Executive of Kingston Hospital and the Korean Embassy
