First Thursdays

FT 7 May


Sci-fi Thursday on Planet K Road

To celebrate this Thursday … may the force be with you!. K Road and surrounds transforms into Planet K Road, complete with battlestars (maybe), Dalek street performances (maybe), activations in various zones all around the K Rd area, and will offer your slice of the strip with a buzzing crowd for the night!
