Le French May

Last year Le French May proudly celebrated its silver jubilee, with 25 years of fine art, music, dance, film, and gastronomy in the Fragrant Harbour.

With 150 programmes presented across two months, Le French May attracts more than one million visitors, keen on seeing the wide variety of exhibitions and performances coming out of France. Le French May aims to reach out to not only the French community in Hong Kong, but the Hong Kong community at large, making it a true cultural exchange.

Over the years, Le French May has given people the opportunity to see world-class performances and artwork, including Masterpieces from the French National Collections, paintings by Edgar Degas and Claude Monet, and performances by the National Opera Ballet of Lyon and the Jean-Claude Gallota Dance Company, just to name a few.

Although this is a great chance to see some of France’s most famous works, Le French May also embraces new and emerging artists, performers and bands, including those from Hong Kong.

In order to reach a wide audience, the events are held not only at traditional venues like Hong Kong City Hall and the Hong Kong Cultural Center, but also small art galleries, public spaces, shopping malls, museums, churches, and, recently, the Happy Valley Racecourse, ensuring that people from all walks of life can explore and participate in this cultural event.
