Embrace the East in Coventry: Lunar New Year Celebration Unleashed!

Are you curious about the mystique of Eastern and Western dragons, the origins of the Lunar New Year, or the diverse interpretations of the 12 Animal Signs across different countries? Imagine immersing yourself in the rich tapestry of traditional Hong Kong New Year customs, now accessible to those who’ve migrated to the UK. From the 2nd to the 15th of February, Coventry HongKongers present a Lunar New Year Celebration mini-exhibition at Central Hall Community Corner, promising an immersive cultural experience.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, 11th February 2024, as Coventry’s Lunar New Year Celebration unfolds, bringing the second day of the Lunar New Year to life. The buzz surrounding this event has been nothing short of electrifying since its announcement, with overwhelming interest and excitement. Today marks the kickoff of registration, and we’re thrilled to unveil the key highlights.

This year’s celebration isn’t just about festive decor and traditional customs; it’s a vibrant fusion of cultural experiences. From Break Dance Workshops hosted by the dynamic Wood Wong to the Prosperous Business Corner supporting local entrepreneurs, the event promises an array of enriching activities. Limited spaces are available for each workshop, so secure your spot early.

“As Wood Wong, the breakdance instructor, puts it, ‘Action is worse than excitement!’ Dive into the thrill of Break Dance; seats are limited, so don’t miss out!”

Beyond dance, the event boasts a myriad of experiences, from dragon head crafting to Chinese calligraphy and painting workshops. Engage in children’s storytelling and creative kindness workshops, and explore Chinese musical instruments.

    When it comes to being creative, I will put my hand to everything and learn as much as I can. I love expressing myself in many different ways, whether it’s on paper, through a lens, or in a digital format. From storytelling to film-making, to creating music or designing a game or app I’m a multi-expressionist and I just enjoy working with different people and creating something to be proud of. I may off been in the industry for over 20 years now, but even now, there is always something new to learn, new technology to play with, explore and express myself in a new and challenging way.
