Notorious French brass party band Le Groupe Électrogène Fanfare Club are set to perform on Friday, March 16 at HKFP’s 2018 fundraiser, supported by Wine’n’things, Young Master Brewery and the Hive Spring.
The group started as the ultimate side project of a pack of homesick Frenchies who longed for their homeland’s ‘ferias’, or festivals, with their boisterous atmosphere and their famous marching bands. Electrically self-powered, they pay tribute to classic French songs and melodies, fueled with pastis and camaraderie.
The party also marks HKFP’s move to the Hive Spring in the heart of Wong Chuk Hang. The Hive is supporting local non-profits, artists, musicians, filmmakers and writers at the beautiful former gallery space.
HKFP is grateful for the generous support of the following event sponsors:
Wine’n’things was founded in 1993 and focuses on importing new world wines from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, the United States and Chile. Recently we have been building our craft beer and spirit range to caterer to a broader demographic and growing trends. We host a range of events to engage our customers with the goal of creating memorable experiences through the use of wine, food and brand personalities.
The Hive Spring is the newest addition to the wide network of the Hive Coworking spaces. The space in the heart of Wong Chuk Hang, was formerly occupied by Spring Workshop, a pioneer in Wong Chuk Hang’s art development. The Hive Spring aims to continue Spring Workshop’s legacy by supporting local artists, musicians, filmmakers and writers. It is also the new base for the Hong Kong Free Press team.
Young Master Brewery opened its doors in December 2013 and kick-started the craft-brewing movement in Hong Kong. Right from inception, our mission has been to make truly distinctive beers with world-class quality standards with no pandering to lowest common denominator flavor profiles. We are Hong Kong’s largest, highest rated, and most awarded craft brewery producing a wide range of exciting craft beers. Our beer list has always featured both classic styles like a well-balanced pale ale, avant-garde beers like a foeder aged mixed culture forest berry sour ale, ones that draw inspiration from flavors of Hong Kong, like a tart and saline Cha Chaan Teng Gose brewed with local salted lime and others that are especially designed for the seasons.
Official HKFP merchandise will be available at a discount on the night.
