Harbour City, 27-35 Berry Street, Chinatown, Liverpool L1 9DF

You Don’t have to be in Beijing to watch the Olympic Opening live!

“At lunchtime on Friday 8 August, the world will turn its eyes to the Olympic Stadium in Beijing for the spectacle and splendour of the Opening Ceremony. Millions of people worldwide will view this historic event, which marks the beginning of 16 days of world-class competition.” (BBC Sport).

This luncheon event is organised by ChinaLink for hundreds to share in this special celebration. Dr. Kegang Wu, Chief China Adviser for British Chambers of Commerce and Director of ChinaLink, said “This Olympics is of extra significance for those of us who are connected both with China and the UK because London will take over the Olympic torch from Beijing at the end.”

If you are disappointed about not being able to be in Beijing, why don’t you join us at this specially organised luncheon to celebrate?

If you have been looking for a unique event to entertain your clients or staff, what can be more special than to invite your guests on such a memorable occasion?

If you like Chinese culture or share an interest in the local Chinese community, this is the opportunity to rub shoulders with the locals at the heart of Liverpool Chinatown.

If you are ChinaLink clients who have been doing business with China, what better to do than coming to toast ‘Gan Bei’ for your business success?

If you are just starting to put China on your business agenda, you won’t find a better crowd to network with at the lunch.

If you are Chinese businessmen, officers, and students visiting the UK or British Chinese, you will be proud to share the moment simultaneously with the 1.3 billion Chinese in China who will be also watching live on TV.

The cost of the event, including drink at arrival and a three course Chinese lunch is £35.25 per head (or £30 concession) inclusive of VAT. (Cheque to be made payable to Liverpool Chamber of Commerce), or a table of 10 at £300 plus VAT.  We anticipate this to be a popular event.

(Car parking: free customer car park at the rooftop of the restaurant, access via Knight Street)
