Everyone is invited to LindyKL’s FIRST physical event of the year—in the lush, open-air Perdana Botanical Garden from 5-7 pm, Saturday, 4th December. Enjoy a physically-distanced picnic and swing jazz listening session, and at 6.30pm, join in on the Shim Sham!
This is an informal event, so while LindyKL won’t be charging any fees, they also won’t be providing any food, drinks, or equipment. So please bring your own and remember to clean up after yourself. You’re also reminded to bring picnic mats/blankets, Bluetooth speaker, snacks and drinks, Shim Sham shoes, and other picnic essentials.
