Want to feed your brain and your stomach? Join us for a dining experience like no other at one of our unique Dim Sum Talks, where you can delve into a fascinating subject whilst sampling a selection of Yang Sing's finest dim sum.


Join us for a fascinating & topical no-holds barred talk with North Korean defector Jihyun Park, and leading Human Rights activist Michael Glendinning...


While headlines across the world focus on nuclear proliferation in North Korea, 120,000 North Koreans are currently detained in the most appalling conditions in gulags, thousands are being exploited in forced labour conditions across the world for profit for the North Korean state, and millions across the country have their rights to freedom of thought, conscience, religion, association, movement, and opinion heavily violated.

The goal at Connect: North Korea is to connect you with the lives, the opinions, the experiences, and the knowledge of North Koreans to raise awareness of North Korean human rights. Michael Glendinning and Jihyun Park will reflect on the current crisis and why the human rights situation must not be relegated to an after-thought.

Our talk will help to shed some light on what North Korea really is, and what day to day life it is like for someone that lives there.

Venue: Yang Sing, China Town

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.


*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.

Dim Sum Talks are a brand new concept, taking our well known Funzing Talks events - and turning them into a dining experience with a difference. Alongside Yang Sing, we've pulled together an impressive array of leading intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work get togethers.

Alongside a fascinating talk from one of our top speakers, you will receive a 8 x dim sum platter exclusively put together by the culinary experts over at the Yang Sing.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives with like-minded Mancunians. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
