Facilities within the Hong Kong Cultural Centre include the main concert hall, 2 theatres, an exhibition gallery, and a foyer exhibition area. There’s also a spacious piazza, with 4 designated sections for outdoor exhibitions and concerts. Some smaller performances are also free to enter, especially in the afternoon.

Located in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre is within a 5-minute walk of the MTR Tsim Sha Tsui Station on the Tsuen Wan Line. It’s also where the Hong Kong International Film Festival takes place – hundreds of world-famous actors and directors gather for a night of film screenings in the city.

Ticket prices depend on the performance but mostly start from HK$70 (HK$600 and above for world-class acts). Performances are a mix of English and Cantonese, so check before booking tickets.
