Chinese New Year Celebrations

Saturday, 2 February 2019

11:00 to 17:00

Old Market Square, Nottingham

This is the 4th Nottingham Chinese New Year Temple Fair event

Nottingham City Council and Nottingham Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) invite you to celebrate 2019 - Chinese year of the pig.

Temple Fairs, also known as Miaohui, are Chinese cultural gatherings taking place during the Chinese New Year period. Temple Fairs were once held exclusively near temples (hence the name), but now are held in a variety of locations.

See and try out activities which regularly feature as part of China’s New Year celebrations. There will be arts and crafts including calligraphy, brush painting and paper cutting; storytelling, music and dance including the Chinese Dragon Dance as well as the chance to try out some authentic Chinese foods.
