    Last saw this show 10 years ago. Went to have a look during our visit on December 2023.
    The show is not as good as previously. The music was not as upbeat and the light seems to be lesser. Though the duration was still 10 minutes.

    The heart & soul of the cultural scene at West Kowloon district, Xiqu Centre is aesthetically pleasing & hosts vibrant shows.

    If you are in Hong Kong for more than 3-4 days then this is a fun little spot to add to your itinerary to see on Hong Kong Island. Make sure to leave enough time to get there because, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's only open for 30 minutes a day and the actual gun is shot only once exactly at noon. The officer stands and looks at his watch until it is precisely noon! A lovely little bit of history.

    This is a large-scale LED show that lights up the International Commerce Centre (ICC) building in West Kowloon with short nightly programmes (presently 7.45pm, 8pm and 9pm). The programmes change periodically and provide viewers with interesting and at times impressive illuminations which you can pair with mobile audio that is downloadable from the ICC Light and Music Show website.

    Given the height of the ICC skyscraper, you can see the ICC nightly light shows from many locations including from up close in the West Kowloon Cultural District all the way to various skyscraper rooftops and waterfronts on HK Island.

    Note: the ICC Light and Music Show now has a sister in the M+ Facade, which faces the harbour just to the south of the ICC tower. Here you see a 65 metre tall and 110 metre wide M+ Museum facade which also projects LED light projections and short programmes from around 7pm to 9pm nightly.

    Fun way of spending a few hours in Kowloon Park by watching all different types of amateur “Kung fu” performances. We even got to see a lion dance performed and were able to have our picture taken with the “lion”.

    The venue is at the south-east corner of Kowloon Park. For the viewers, there was a big tent with rows of plastic chairs set up. I got there about 20 minutes before the performances started and there was still a number of empty seats left. Remaining viewers had to stand.

    I stayed for an hour watching the performances and then moved on. It’s not a must do activity in Hong Kong, but I’m still glad I saw it.

    Afternoon visits there were quiet and productive given the way the seating was laid out. Reasonable food items, good coffee and good service. Great space, and nicely laid out.

    Interesting intro to elements of the Cantonese opera repertoire, in a modern and intimate setting (seating less than 200). Subtitles on screen means no need to consult program notes even if you do not understand Cantonese, although some know of Chinese history and culture will make the performance much more comprehensible. Unfortunately during Covid-19 no food or drinks allowed so the 'Tea House' setting goes for naught, but overall quite enjoyable even though I must admit opera (Chinese or Western) is not exactly my cup of tea. But setting quite close to the stage does allow me to watch the footwork, gestures and other details much more clearly. Performers are all young, which is good (this art form need new blood) though they may not be top notch technique wise. All told a worth-while experience.

    So glad that I visited the town hall during my visit to Sheung Shui. I managed to get some useful tourist information about the town and city. There was a tourist information map of Sheung Shui at the entrance of the building as well which was helpful for visitors. I also managed to buy Chinese opera and concert tickets for performances in Hong Kong Concert Hall....etc
