From Lamma Fun Day organisers:

Lamma Fun Day Beach Music Festival
Saturday 4th November 2017


Don't miss Lamma Fun Day Beach Music Festival on Saturday 4th November 2017 from 11am til 10pm on Tai Wan To Beach near Yung Shue Wan.

More than 15 bands, musicians, singers and DJs will perform on two stages as part of this FREE family-friendly music festival raising money to support Child Welfare Scheme Hong Kong (CWS HK) and its work with children in Nepal.

Lamma Fun Day includes 30+ market stalls, a licensed bar, food stalls, charity auction, magic show, arts and crafts fun, plus beach games and sports for both kids and adults.

This is the 17th Lamma Fun Day organized by CWS HK and volunteers, with the generous support of Lamma Island and Hong Kong businesses, and supported by thousands of Hong Kong residents and visitors who've had fun at this annual outdoor event.

Runners race for charity across Lamma
The day kicks off early for the 500+ runners in the Lamma8 and Lamma14 races, who will race along 8km and 14km trails through the hills, returning to Tai Wan To Beach in time for music and fun.

Music on two stages at Tai Wan To Beach
Live music starts at 12 noon on the Beach Stage, with classical-pop duo Sisters First. Next up are The Shortwaves, followed by festival rock and rollers Quasar, then a funk-infused set from High Hopes, before Red Star Rising bring their sizzling brand of rock blues to the beach. Late afternoon sees local favorites Midlife Crisis Cowboys on stage with "cod-Country" covers of 80s indie classics.

Around sunset The Side Burns take to the Beach Stage with an infectious brand of raucous rockabilly, followed by post-punk outfit The Sinister Left and indie-rockers Wanchai Warriors. Opium promise an intoxicating set with sultry trip-hop grooves/jazz and rock vibes.

After 9pm Lamma welcomes back the energetic psychedelic-synth of party rockers Shumking Mansion, followed by enthusiastic folk funk from Hedonia and DJ Jimbrowski with tunes from the jungle.

Over at the Road Stage music starts at 1pm, with the appropriately named Acoustic Noodles. Gifted solo singer-songwriters Jules O’Brien and Todd Warner Moore will also perform during the afternoon. Expect mantras and incantations from New Age ensemble One Love late afternoon, and after 6pm it's time for the DJs - Jimbrowski, Barnaby Bruce, Nosta and Dieter K Shafter.

FREE family-friendly fun
From 12 noon, Discovery College students will run beach games for kids, the Brazilian Football Academy is organizing soccer games for kids aged eight to 14 years from 2pm, and the beach volleyball tournament starts at 12 noon. There's also arts and crafts activities, face painting, and - not to be missed - magic and mirth with Robert Rogers' Family Fun, Fun Show at 2pm on the Road Stage.

Feasting and fundraising
Hot items at this year's charity live auction and silent auction include: luxury hotel stays, original artwork, restaurant vouchers, kids' activities, an eco-friendly stay at The Pavilions Himalayas in Nepal, and a tandem paragliding experience in Hong Kong.

"Everything you eat and drink at Lamma Fun Day also raises money for CWS HK and its life-changing work with children in Nepal," says event organizer Sonya Yeung of Bliss Creations. Fundraising stalls on Power Station Road include a licensed bar, food stalls serving dishes from around the world, amazing homemade cakes plus secondhand bargains at the bric-a-brac, clothes and book stalls.

Money raised at this year’s Lamma Fun Day will help fund CWS HK’s Child Friendly Schools initiative, which is transforming 48 schools in villages in western Nepal, over four years.

"Almost half of Nepal’s children drop out of school by the time they reach 15 years of age due to poorly trained teachers, a lack of resources and poor infrastructure. When a child drops out of school they become easy targets for human traffickers. The longer a child stays in school the less likely they are to be tricked and exploited," says Douglas Maclagan, founder CWS HK.

The Child Friendly School project makes school buildings and playgrounds safe, classrooms more appealing, provides extra teacher training and improves teaching resources. "We also reach out to communities to involve parents and promote education, which increases the chances of children attending and staying in schools in these poor and remote areas," says Jake McCauley, CEO, CWS HK.

Please help CWS HK transform lives through education in Nepal - join us at Lamma Fun Day, Saturday 4th November for Lamma Fun Day!

It's been so long since my last tie-dye T-shirt experiences, hoping to relive my misspent wannabe hippie (never succeeding) years tomorrow!
