Hong Kong Sevens

Hold on to your rugby balls because the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens is back. Earning a legendary status for its ridiculous costumes, beer swigging antics, and general debauchery, this year's event lands at Hong Kong Stadium from April 5 to 7. As always, the festival comes with an action-packed schedule, starting with the Sevens kick-off concert, presented by Marriott Bonvoy and starring the one and only Gwen Stefani. While lucky Marriott Bonvoy members get to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime VIP meet-and-greet with the iconic star, the rest of us get to go B-A-N-A-N-A-S for her epic anthems. Those looking for family-friendly fun can enjoy the exciting activities on offer at the Rugby Sevens Festival in Lee Garden, including the return of EGGssentially Art! Really, there’s no need for us to explain more is there? So gather the gang and have yourself an unforgettable weekend.

Senior editor

Born in Hong Kong and raised in the UK, Jenny grew up with the best of both worlds. She loves just about anything to do with music and doesn’t shy away from belting out a tune or two when it comes to karaoke. If she’s not out and about exploring the city and practising her photography skills, she’s probably tucked up in bed with a book or glued to her laptop doing her online shopping.
