The Official Liverpool FREE celebration for Chinese New Year from Friday 16 – Sunday 18 February!
Liverpool will celebrate the Year of the Dog with a 3-day celebration in Chinatown.
Chinese New Year 2018 will celebrate Liverpool’s rich Chinese links with exciting celebrations, immersive projections, pyrotechnics and live cultural performances.
Projections will illuminate the iconic Chinese Arch, the Black-E and The Arch (former Scandinavian Hotel) Friday & Saturday evenings, closing the weekend's celebrations with a pyrotechnic finale on Sunday.
Continuing 2017’s story of the ancient and mythical Jingwei bird, the projections will tell the ancient story, in a reflection of the growth and development of the vibrant Chinese community in the city. A specially commissioned soundscape will provide the atmosphere to fuse traditional and contemporary music.
Chinese New Year 2018 is part of Chapter 1 of China Dream, a 9-month city-wide exploration of contemporary Chinese arts & culture from February to October.
Full event listing & more information will be announced soon but follow the conversation with #ChinaDream, #CNY and #Liverpool2018.
