Chinese New Year 2019 celebrations in London
Welcome in the 'Year of the Pig' at this massive Chinese New Year celebration which will fill most of the West End with music, acrobatic and activities. Dragon and lion dances will kick things off on Charing Cross Road at 10am, shimmying down through the streets to China Town. At noon, Trafalgar Square’s main stages will spring into action with traditional dance shows, contemporary hip-hop acts and Chinese performers. More about the grub? Food trucks will also be stationed there and restaurants in Chinatown will have special festive treats on their menus.
Welcome the Year of Pig watching the Shaolin Fists Lion Dance Troupe perform as another powerful animal. Starting outside the main doors of Asia House, the Lion Dance will weave its way through the building to the sounds of drums, cymbals and a gong. Don’t miss it picking up five lucky oranges along the way. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
