London Korean Festival 2017

On 8th July, 2017, the ‘London Korean Festival’ was held to great acclaim in Olympia London, welcoming 12,000 visitors throughout the day.

The festival was an opportunity to experience Korean food & culture and learn more about the forthcoming PyeongChang2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, followed by a sell out evening with Korea's latest Kpop idols.

The Festival daytime activities featured Taekwondo, cultural performances and a host of Korea's dynamic arts culture, from webtoons to traditional crafts.

The Korea Tourism Organisation was there to promote PyeongChang 2018 (commencing February 2018), along with a host of ideas on what to see and do in Korea throughout the year.

The number of millennials enjoying the activities from VR ski-jumping, curling, food and performances further demonstrated Korea's attractiveness to this next generation of travellers.

Featured events included:

Edinburgh Festival sold-out show, TAGO (pictured top)
