Good news for fans of Korean culture who will be near London during the summer. London Korean Festival is coming to New Malden on Saturday 17th August!

Hosted by Korean Boy Woogie, the event promises to be packed with things to see and do. A Korean Street Market will fill the high street, with a huge selection of foods on offer all day. The World Korean Foods Festival by KORSA will also be there. A line up of demonstrations and tasting sessions will happen throughout the day, so if there’s something you want to learn to cook or try for the first time, this is the perfect opportunity.

There will also be a myriad of performances, ranging from Kpop covers to traditional dance to a street performance by Maro.

Entry is free and everyone is encouraged to come along and get involved! The team organising the event are currently still looking for volunteers. If this interests you, you can apply here.
