Chinese New Year 2018
16 to 18 February
Part of Liverpool 2018, 10th anniversary of the European Capital of Culture
Light, projections, firecrackers and sound will take over Chinatown, Berry Street, William Brown Street and Bold Street in a celebration of the relationship between Liverpool and China, using the voices and stories of young Chinese people living in the city.
Artists and organisations including Illuminos, Pagoda Arts, First Take, CooL and Kazimier Productions will use the city scape as their canvas to present a story of modern China in the UK. The city will be dressed for the festival from the 8 – 28 February with traditional Chinese Lanterns, lighting and digital projections with activity taking place across this period with traditional performers from Hung Gar Kung Fu.
The festival will end on Sunday evening with a lumiere showcase followed by a pyrotechnic finale.
