Liverpool get ready for the biggest-ever Lunar New Year celebrations yet, as we get ready to welcome in the Year of the Dragon!
Lunar New Year in Liverpool will take place from Friday 9 to Sunday 11 February, and this year we are also celebrating the 25th anniversary of the city’s twinning with Shanghai!
For the first time the FREE activities will not only take over the Chinatown area, but they will also bring a festival of colour and sound to the Bombed Out Church (St Luke’s), Liverpool ONE and the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool.
As well as the usual Chinatown takeover which includes traditional dragon, lion and unicorn parades, firecracker displays, family workshops, Tai Chi demonstrations, live music, a fairground and food and craft stalls – Culture Liverpool has commissioned brand new cultural pieces to celebrate Europe’s oldest Chinese community.
