It is held in a tea house with comfortable seats and a table. The performances are varied and a delight, showing aspects of local tradition and culture. The face changing performance is outstanding. A very pleasant evening out.

We did not know what to expect but this was a wonderful variety show. It did not matter that we did not understand Chinese , we enjoyed all the acts, the singing and dancing and especially the face changing. What talent. Definitely recommend

Was interested to see the face changing acts which were fantastic. The shadow puppet work was also very good as was the female juggler. All in all a good night out.
