Listing Your Show

We will post your event with basic information on our calendar FOR FREE.

To notify us of your show, please send an email to

  1. Show Name, Company Name, Author Name, Show Genre

  2. Venue Name and Location

  3. Times, Dates, Ticket Prices (and any discounts)

  4. Blurb on the show (maximum 50 words)

  5. Any warnings to audience members, age restrictions

  6. Contact person (name, mobile, email) for follow-up questions.

We will post your listing as far in advance as you like – the earlier you put it out there, the greater your potential audience share.

We will aim to post your listing within one working day of receipt unless anything needs clarifying.

We cannot put external links into our calendar because of formatting reasons.

Certain parts of the HKELD calendar are drop down menus rather than free text. This limits some of the information such as ticketing, age restriction and genre.

Great to share with your cast/crew- creating an informed audience member! Previews are sponsored content. The artistic company pays us 500HKD to pay our writer for their time, and for the server space to support their videos, photos on our site.
