A long time ago, different clans began to settle in Sheung Shui and Fanling to form villages, including the Lius, the Haus, the Tangs and the Pangs. In addition to villagers' dwellings, there are ancestral halls, study halls and temples in the villages. Lantern-lighting rituals, ancestral worships, Ta Chiu Festival and other festive rituals are held on a regular basis. In this talk, the speaker will introduce the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of these major clans to enhance participants' understanding of the traditional rural life in the New Territories.

Talk conducted in Cantonese. Limited seat. Free admission by phone at 2679 2804 from 28.10.2018 (Sunday).
