The Lawn Club launches this month with a live stream screening from Glastonbury.
Following on from the success of The Grounds at Hong Kong’s AIA Vitality Park, event creators Greater Bay Media Entertainment will be unveiling The Lawn Club this summer.
Billed as Hong Kong’s ultimate socially-distanced summer garden party, The Lawn Club promises al fresco screenings of the summer’s top sporting events, live music and a raft of lighthearted garden games.
The summer programme kicks off on May 22 and 23 with a pre-launch live stream of Glastonbury Festival Presents Live at Worthy Farm, with performances from the likes of Coldplay, Damon Albarn, HAIM, Jorja Smith, Wolf Alice and more.
As the summer unfurls, major international sporting events covering football, tennis and more will be broadcast on the big screen, complemented by themed events. As with The Grounds, a wide selection of food and drink will be available throughout, delivered to guests’ socially distanced pods.
Guests at each session will also have the opportunity to try a range of classic lawn games, including boules, croquet, bocce ball (similar to French pétanque) and cornhole - if you’re not familiar with these outdoor pursuits, don’t worry, there will be games masters on hand to show you the ropes.
Tickets will be released on a weekly basis and are inclusive of a four-person pod, playing court access and in-pod games for the five hour session. Upgrades to premium seating are available, complete with luxe couches and optimal stage views.
“Our team carefully curated The Lawn Club experience to combine the atmosphere of a large-scale event with the safety and intimacy of a private gathering,” said The Lawn Club managing director Simon Wilson. “We aim to continuously bring innovative experiences to Hong Kong, while supporting the recovery of the hospitality industry through collaborations with the city’s key entertainment, culture and food and beverage partners.”
Covid-safe precautions include pre-registration, health declarations, temperature checks, hand sanitisers at every entry and exit point, contactless ordering, socially-distanced pods and thorough cleaning between sessions.
Tickets for the Glastonbury screening are now available online.
