Upcoming events

Here is a list of current and upcoming events that have been posted to LKL, sorted by start date. Note that there may be a few events which haven’t made it onto the below list (I can’t keep up with all the language meetups, dance workshops and K-pop parties). Most of the latter events are listed on Facebook, and you can find an aggregation of all UK Facebook-listed Korea-related events that we know about here. So a combination of the two lists should give you the complete picture. I try to post everything into our Google Calendar as well.

Where no hyperlink is provided for the event below, that’s because we’re still assembling the detailed information for it. A link will follow once we’ve completed and published the relevant events post. Updates to the list (which might be new events, or edits to events already posted) made in the last five days are flagged as *Recent*.
