Chinese New Year 2017

This month Liverpool will be celebrating the Year of the Rooster with a three day run of celebrations commencing with projections which will run from Friday 27 – Sunday 29 January in Chinatown.

Telling the story of Jingwei and the Ocean, the #CNYLumiere projections will light up the Chinese Arch, the Black-E and The Arch (formerly known as the Scandinavian Hotel) for an hour each night. The 12-minute show will run on a loop for one hour during Friday and Saturday night from 7.30 – 8.30pm and between 5.00 – 6.00pm on Sunday.

Into the weekend, you can continue the celebrations in a specially created Augmented Reality (AR) trail which will take people on a tour through some amazing moments in Chinese cultural history in Liverpool and beyond.

Finally, the traditional celebrations will take place in Great George Square on Sunday 29 January with a series of street performances, family workshops, art installations, parades and of course the popular Chinese market on George Street selling gifts, souvenirs and mouth watering food!
