Imagine, the world's television cameras reporting back from Hong Kong on June 28. Cut from the harbour (with single wooden junk) to the Convention Centre being quickly made to look finished. And then cut to the Academy for Performing Arts, where a crowd of Pimms-filled rowdies will be softly swaying, waving streamers and national flags, singing Jerusalem and standing (supposedly) to God Save the Queen. A shocking number of people will no doubt take it seriously. Outside Britain, viewers will probably think this is always how the end of an empire is marked; inside Britain it will confirm many people's fears: that expatriates in Hong Kong are diehard colonialists of the kind that Hollywood loves to recreate. It will take some persuading of overseas communities that Last Night of the P(r)oms (APA Lyric Theatre, June 28 to 29) is just a good-natured and tongue-in-cheek reference to all of that. 'We just wanted to do something that's fun,' said James Cundall who has organised the event, based on the Royal Albert Hall end-of-Proms tradition, with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and special guests performing the old favourites. It won't be gushingly British: there'll be Chinese and Hong Kong flags as well as the Union Flag, and Butterfly Lovers and other Chinese anthems will also be on the programme. 'It's a celebration of 150 years, not a political statement,' Mr Cundall said. Tickets on sale from April 26 or call 2805 2804. If anyone else wants to organise a big party, a concert, a dance, requiem or farce in Urban Council venues during June and July, some spaces have opened up this week, after the Government and the Association for Celebration of Reunification of Hong Kong and China said they don't need them. The Cultural Centre Concert Hall has a few dates free in June, while the Grand Theatre, astonishingly, is free for a full 10 days before the handover, from June 21 to 30. Which seems an extraordinary waste of opportunities: April is rather late to anything interesting. The Coliseum still has June 8 to 11 free, while the Queen Elizabeth Stadium is vacant from June 23 to 30 and the Hong Kong Stadium has four days from June 12 to 15 for one-handed clapping events. The arty image of the old Bank of China Building is in for some heavy knocking as the bank has claimed the building back. While the Long March Bar of the China Club (which occupies the three upper floors) is not having to do a long march just yet, T T Tsui's private museum, and the Hanart Gallery are going to have to find somewhere else. 'We still have a few years left on the lease, and there is no question that we will be moving out before then,' confirmed China Club's David Tang. However, the other arts representatives will be gone before the autumn. 'Everyone is moving except the China Club,' Hanart's Johnson Chang said. 'Originally we'd hoped they would let some of the better-connected tenants stay, but they need all the space.' Hanart's handover is after July, Mr Chang confirmed. The Tsui Gallery, on the 11th floor, is also in some disarray over the decision. 'Write to us next month, we haven't decided what to do,' suggested a member of staff, who confirmed current plans were to move the valuable collection of porcelain, Tang-dynasty pottery and a fabulous giant Buddha head to the New Bank of China Building on Garden Road. There will at least be less to move than there would have been a year ago: a sizeable proportion of T T Tsui's collection has been sold recently, with most of the local arts community speculating wildly as to the reasons.
