London celebrates the Chinese New Year

2024 marks the year of the Dragon and another fantastic parade and event on Trafalgar Square for Chinese New Year.

This free annual event will take place across Chinatown and the West End, with the main stage sitting on Trafalgar Square.

The fun in Trafalgar Square normally begins with screen shows and a Thanksgiving ceremony. You will be able to experience traditional dances with both the dragon and the flying lion. Make sure to have a fun-filled cultural day including music shows, martial arts displays and a superb lineup from China.

As night falls over London, the finale gets underway with a variety of showstopper performances alongside fireworks to mark the end of the Year of the Rat festivities.

To find out more about the history of Chinese New Year and the event, take a look at the London Chinatown Chinese Association.
