If you’re like us we’re sure you’ll love a take-away from your oriental restaurant, but why not push the boat (or even dhow) out and join in the festivities of Chinese New Year?
Chinese New Year celebrations are synonymous with red, gold and fireworks and streets decorated in lanterns, streamers. Dancing dragons, the sound of drums and the smell of wonderful food, what’s not to enjoy?
A city near you will be celebrating Chinese New Year, and the Lantern Festival in February including London, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, and Southampton. Exact dates and events will vary depending on location and with no tickets needed what’s stopping you from immersing yourself in Chinese culture? See below for all the info and I hope you have a fun time.
