Chinese New Year

About

Welcome in the Year of the Rat at Birmingham’s Chinese New Year Celebrations.

Kicking off the festivities on Friday 24th January will be a Chinese classical concert presented by the University of Birmingham, held at the Bramall Concert Hall. On Saturday, shoppers at Bullring & Grand Central will be able to enjoy the much loved lion and dragon procession, plus traditional fan and umbrella dances, amazing acrobats and much more throughout the day. A special Wish Tree will also be on display in Grand Central, with visitors invited to add their New Year wishes.

To celebrate the official Chinese New Year’s Day on Sunday 26th January, there will be an exciting programme of performances and free activities in Birmingham’s Chinatown, located in the heart of Southside. The main stage in Hippodrome Square will host the official opening and closing ceremonies with a variety of performances throughout the day. Birmingham Hippodrome’s Patrick Studio will also host a free performance on Sunday, with an array of more free family-friendly activities available across the area.

Visitors can immerse themselves in Chinese culture, browsing a variety of authentic market stalls, sample delicious street food and watch impressive martial arts displays.

The weekend has been organised by the Chinese Festival Committee and Birmingham Hippodrome. The annual event now attracts up to 30,000 visitors and is set to be one of the biggest events in the Southside calendar.
