Chinese New Year 2018

It’s the Year of the Dog - join us for a day of celebration in the heart of Manchester’s China Town.

Manchester Art Gallery
Sunday 18 February 2018, 11am–4.15pm

We welcome you to celebrate Chinese New Year 2018 at Manchester Art Gallery.

The gallery is located in the centre of China Town, a perfect base to soak up the atmosphere! 

Musician Henry Fung will be performing wonderful traditional Chinese music, you can watch traditional Dragon Dancers and the thrilling Lion Dancers. Artists will be on hand to help you make Chinese animal lanterns throughout the day. 

This year we are partnering with our neighbours at Central Library, who have traditional Chinese Dancers and Storytelling. It is easy to visit both venues to get a really rich and vibrant introduction to Chinese art forms.
