One of the world’s premiere rugby events, the Hong Kong Rugby 7s sees fans from all over the world fly into the Fragrant Harbor to watch as some of the best talent in world rugby slog it out. This year’s competition will be supplemented by performances from Gwen Stefani, while boozy crowds will also converge on Hong Kong’s Central Harborfront to catch games on a big screen. Will Fiji be able to defend their title from last year? Let’s wait and see.

While you may not know this, ‘Baby Shark’ was originally a campfire song. The catchy tune caught fire over the past decade, thanks largely to social media, and the work of South Korean education brand, Pinkfong, who released their own version of ‘Baby Shark’ back in 2015. Whether you love the song or hate it, you can sure bet that your kids will enjoy this show. 

Sat-Sun Apr 20-21, 10.30am/2pm/5.30pm; HKD280-580. Star Hall. Tickets.

Apr 24: Tom Green Live in Hong Kong

Green is perhaps best-known for his turn in Road Trip, but the irreverent comic also rose to fame on MTV during the channel’s heyday with his zany sketch show, The Tom Green Show. These days Green has been doing the rounds of reality TV shows like Celebrity Big Brother and Hell’s Kitchen, although he has found time to appear with the next generation of kooky comedians like Eric Andre.  

Wed Apr 24, 8.30pm; HKD420-2,600. Grappa’s Cellar. Tickets.
