Dubbed the Heritage edition, the not-for-profit event brings together leading dealers, auction houses galleries, museums and cultural institutions in the area to create a programme that spans antiquities to contemporary works of art.

The events are free to the public and include private viewings at Christie's, Sotheby's and Bonhams; a lecture by Jessica Harrison-Hall, the British Museum's Chinese ceramics curator; a collectors' roundtable; and a lecture on netsuke and sagemono by dealer Robert Fleischel.

Ahead of their Asian sales in June at Crosshall Manor in Cambridgeshire, auctioneers Lyon & Turnbull are sponsoring the opening ceremony at Hong Kong's China Club in partnership with their sister company Freeman's of Philadelphia.
