Prepare to be dazzled and stunned by the awe-inspiring sights and sounds of the Chinese New Year! With a prevalent and culturally-rich China Town, Chinese New Year celebrations are a must in Liverpool.

2018 is the Year of the Dog, and the New Year will begin with a three day celebration; get yourself to Chinatown for the free event which promises to impress, as it does every year.

This year, the Chinese New Year celebrations also serve as part of the “China Dream” season that is running from February to October 2018, and will see Liverpool reflect on and embrace Chinese arts and culture. There will be projections, music and lights telling the story of Liverpool’s amazing Chinese history and culture. Be dazzled by the age-old tale of Jingwei and the Ocean and learn about the culture of China by joining in a fascinating history walk where you’ll hear the ins and outs of Chinese history.

The celebrations are to take place in Great George Square, beginning on Sunday 16th February with street performances, family workshops, art installations and the Chinese Market selling food and souvenirs.
