This summer, the British Chamber of Commerce in China, in association with The Hutong, aims to re-energise your social circle with a new and exciting event series!
Re-discover the city you have been living in, and understand Beijing better with us! Starting from 26 July, we are taking you through Beijing in 5 different senses – taste, smell, touch, hearing and sight, with a special 'British' element added to each activity! Each weekend at The Hutong (Beixinqiao)*, we will introduce a new programme suitable for a group of friends, families, and those who are seeking opportunities to meet new people in town!
Join us on the 9 August to hear fascinated stories on Beijing's Legation Quarter, delivered by Jeremiah Jenne.
Beijing's Legation Quarter was a world unto itself. A polyglot mix of diplomats, soldiers, criminals, and commercial enterprises flourished, surrounded by the decay of a once-mighty imperial capital. In 1900, the Legation Quarter became the center of a global crisis when the Boxers, anti-foreign insurgents from rural Shandong, besieged the foreign and Christian communities of Beijing. Join Jeremiah Jenne, writer and proprietor Beijing by Foot, for a lively, informative, and occasionally irreverent discussion of Legation Quarter, the Boxer War, and the international community in Beijing in the early 20th century.
Jeremiah Jenne is a writer and history teacher based in Beijing since 2002. He has written about Chinese history for numerous publications including The Economist, the South China Morning Post, The Beijinger, the World of Chinese and Radii China. He is the proprietor of Beijing by Foot, a company that leads educational programs and historical walks in Beijing.
