About Chinese New Year Celebrations 2016

Andy Chung along with Glasgow City Council and the Chinese Consulate are hosting Chinese New Year celebrations this year to mark the Year of the Monkey.

This is the first time any event of this kind has been organised in Scotland and we are hoping to bring some festive spirit to the community.

On the day there will be Dragon Dancing, Lion Dancing, Chinese Martial Arts Displays, Pipers, Chinese National Dance Performances and much more.

An event not to be missed and some fun for the whole family, so please come along and be part of a memorable Chinese New Year!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Chinese New Year Celebrations 2016 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
