The theatre will focus on the historical development of Hong Kong's coastal defence with illustration of military facilities and weapons such as coastal guns, torpedo, warships and the redoubt of the Lei Yue Mun Fort.
These workshops provide a chance for parents and children to learn about the armaments that related to the military history of Hong Kong by joining hands to make a paper model.
The public lectures aim to enhance the public's understanding of the military history and the history of the coastal defence of Hong Kong.
The “Hong Kong Memory” Project, conceived as Hong Kong's response to UNESCO's “Memory of the World” Project which aims to preserve historical records and valuable library collections through digitization, is a joint project launched by the Government of the Hong Kong SAR and The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
A Hong Kong Memory website is built for the purpose, which is a multimedia website that gives free and open access to digitized materials on the historical and cultural heritage of Hong Kong, including text documents, photographs, posters, sound recordings, motion pictures and videos.
A series of talk on Hong Kong Memory will be conducted in Hong Kong Public Libraries from 2019 to 2020 in order to promote this resourceful website and raise the public awareness.
