Established in 1993, the annual Le French May Festival has become an iconic part of Hong Kong’s cultural scene, with events that attract over one million local residents and visitors each year.
Celebrating its silver jubilee, this year’s Le French May will carry the theme of “Celebrate Art and Life the French Way”. The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust will again be its major partner, contributing over HK$9.9 million to support four delightful arts programmes as well as one educational initiative. They comprise:
In addition, the Trust is sponsoring 1,500 complimentary tickets for disadvantaged students and the less privileged, as well as supporting programmes for audiences with visual or hearing impairment. This ensures that the delights of Le French May can be shared with a much wider audience.
The Trust has a long-standing commitment to developing Hong Kong’s arts, culture and heritage, and has supported many different cultural festivals, both large and small. Apart from Le French May, the Trust is a regular partner of the Hong Kong Arts Festival and is funding the much anticipated Lumières Hong Kong in November.
