They will bring audiences a variety of unique experiences, including Chinese and Western music, dance and drama. The schedule of performances is as follows:

The Community Cultural Ambassador Scheme was launched by LCSD in 1999. Every year, local performing artists and arts groups are invited as Cultural Ambassadors to promote the performing arts through workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions and performances. Over 81 performing artists and arts groups have been selected as Cultural Ambassadors since the launch of the scheme.
As the shopping centres of The Link are closely connected with their respective communities, The Link supports the sustainable development of local arts and culture by sponsoring venues for public performances and exhibitions.
