Birmingham’s annual Chinese New Year celebration is back and is bigger than ever; with two stages, lion dances, funfair rides, street food and a host of traditional entertainment taking over Southside on Sunday 18th February, from 11.30am to 4.30pm.
Building on the success of previous years, plans for the 2018 festival have been revealed and will see the capacity double in size. The event, which is organised by Chinese Festival Committee – Birmingham (CFC-B), will be jointly managed by Birmingham City Council and Birmingham Hippodrome.
Birmingham Hippodrome will take part in the festivities with traditional performances outside their main entrance and children’s workshops in the Patrick Centre. The Arcadian Centre will have a host of stalls and street food as well as a large marquee with seating area.
