Slowly, but surely, things are returning to normal in the Chinese capital. People are starting to venture outside, work is beckoning us back to the office and the warming weather is encouraging us to dream of in-person social activities and long walks in beautiful parks.
But step by step. There are still necessary restrictions in place, and we need to remain cautious while planning for the weeks and months ahead. In the meantime, read on for some great offers from Cultural Keys that will help you get through the (hopefully!) last few weeks of restrictions, or even help you save money in the months ahead!
UPDATED: Our March offers were so well received, we have extended, and widened them, into April as well! Take a look at what we have going on, and let us know if there is anything here that catches your eye!

As a community, as soon as the coronavirus situation has passed, we will likely all breathe a collective sigh of relief, and start thinking about ways we can relax and celebrate with our friends, colleagues, staff, students and members again. Whether that takes the form of a a small get-together, or a large social activity, cultural activities are a great team-building opportunity, no matter who is on your team!

20% savings on ALL kung fu workshops in March and April for BEN members!
UPDATED: In March, we offered a huge discount to members of Beijing’s premier expat WeChat group, B.E.N. We are extremely grateful to founder, Elisabeth, for her support, and to all the B.E.N members who booked programs with us. Due to its success, however, we now want to extend that same offer to everyone in the Beijing community!
Of course, some people don’t want to wait for indoor venues to re-open, and just want to be outdoors and active as soon as possible! If you are one of those kinds of people, Cultural Keys is now offering all in the Beijing expat community a 200MB saving on all outdoor kung fu and taichi workshops until the end of April!
In April, we are reducing the usual price of 988RMB to just 788RMB for a 2 hour THREE HOUR session for up to 4 people (that means if you get together with 3 other friends or colleagues, it will cost just 197RMB each!), held in Ritan Park on an afternoon of your choice, any time before the end of April 2020.
Simply add AJDonnelly on WeChat (or scan the QR code on the Cultural Keys poster above) and let us know what you would like to book. We offer both Yang Style taichi and Shaolin beginners workshops, either of which are suitable for everyone, no matter your experience level or current physical ability. Perfect for beginners in fact!
Two new online culture presentations via Zoom!!
In March, it was our pleasure to offer everyone the opportunity to keep accessing, understanding and enjoying Chinese culture remotely via WeChat and Zoom online presentations.
The response to those offerings was so great, with such great feedback, that we are happy to offer two more in-depth presentations in April!
Join us from the comfort of your own home to hear English-language presentations about Chinese gardens, including history, design, and where to see them in Beijing; and a look at the stories and cultural significance of the Chinese zodiac, both throughout history and in modern times.
These unique presentations are sure sure to teach you something you didn’t already know, and possibly even pique your interest in ways you never expected!
We hope that these great offers interest you, and give you something to look forward to in both the long and short term. What else are you looking forward to post-coronavirus?
