Marking the New Year of the Lunar Calendar, London’s Chinese New Year will celebrate the Year of the Dog with events taking place on 18th February 2018, the Sunday after the official Chinese New Year date, 16th February.
Activities usually include a brightly coloured Chinese New Year parade which floats through Chinatown and the West End, along with lion and dragon dances, and traditional and contemporary Chinese cultural performances on Trafalgar Square’s main stage. The New Year celebrations will end with an extravagant firework display to welcome in the New Year for London’s Chinese communities.
If you’re a lover of Chinese cuisine, you won’t be disappointed as 2018’s Chinese New Year also has plenty instore for all the foodies out there. Get ready to sample special festive delights from a range of Chinese New Year menus from some of Chinatown's best loved restaurants.
Don’t forget to learn the Chinese New Year greetings, after all it’s only polite to respond in the same language as your greeter. “Happy New Year” in Cantonese is, “San Nin Faai Lok” or in Mandarin it’s, “Xin Nian Kuai Le”.
