Chinese New Year
8 – 10 February

Celebrate the Year of the Pig in the UK’s oldest Chinese Quarter. Festivities kick off from 7pm on Friday and Saturday with lion dancing (very different from line dancing!) and Chinese-influenced street theatre in around the Chinese Arch.  A light and pyrotechnic show will be projected onto surrounding buildings, with a live soundtrack provided by Jah Wobble.  Sunday’s the big one though, with a jam-packed schedule of events, including street and stage performances, family workshops, parades, firecracker displays and a Chinese market.
