Zoë Baxter presents a special edition of Lucky Cat previewing the Chinese Visual Festival at 5:30pm today. This is the second festival of Chinese visual culture brought to London by China Culture Connect. Zoë will be joined live by the Festival’s Marketing Manager James Mudge and the show will feature a live musical performance by Boulevard Productions who will be performing a Mandarin version of the classic musical Sweet Charity at the Festival’s Music Night on 28 June. The Festival opens on 22 June, the eve of the Dragon Boat Festival, at the Free Word Centre in central London and will feature the UK premiere of the film Dragon Boat by acclaimed director Cao Dan. It runs until 6 July across four central London venues and is themed Run, China, Run. The theme ties in with the Olympics: hosting the 2008 Beijing Olympics has affected Chinese society and the festival looks at the ‘aftershock’ of the 2008 Beijing Olympics through a variety of Chinese films and art. Full programme and tickets are available on the Chinese Visual Festival website.
