Manchester Art Gallery
Sunday 26 January 2020, 11am–4.30pm
Join us to celebrate the year of the rat with a range of Manchester based artists and Chinese performers from the Confucius Institute.
You can pick and choose what you do; take part in a Tai Chi class, listen to traditional Chinese Guzheng and Flute music, make shadow puppets, decorate cookies or borrow drawing materials to capture the extravaganza. Don’t forget to catch the Lion Dance at the end of the day.
All our activities are suitable for families.
Please note we can get very busy on this special day, as we are located in the heart of China Town.
Our neighbours at Central Library are running a complimentary programme of fabulous family activities, please check their website for more details.
