Chinese New Year Celebrations at Nottingham Lakeside Arts


Welcome the Year of the Dog with Chinese New Year celebrations at Lakeside Arts (2018)


Nottingham Lakeside Arts welcomes the Year of the Dog, which officially begins on Friday 16 February, with a celebration of Chinese traditional and contemporary culture in which people of all ages can participate and enjoy. This year’s events include Chinese language film, activities for families, an exhibition, and a special Gala event.


On Saturday 17 February families visiting Lakeside Arts will be able to take part in the free drop-in Chinese Arts and Crafts workshops where participants will learn how to create attractive Chinese lanterns and window flowers. Later in the afternoon, the Djanogly Theatre will host the Nottingham Confucius Institute’s Chinese New Year Gala where audiences will experience a kaleidoscope of fresh and fascinating performances by performers including Sichuan Opera face-changing and Kung Fu of the highest standard. All proceeds from this performance will be donated to the Children’s Brain Tumour Research. Please Note that tickets to see the performances are now sold out.


Until Sunday 18 February visitors to Lakeside’s Wallner Gallery can enjoy Jiang Hongsheng’s stunning exhibition of Chinese brush paintings where all scrolls on display are available for sale. Hongsheng is the winner of a National Golden Prize for Chinese painting and is also founder of the Red Peony Academy, Ningbo.


On Friday 23 February at the end of half-term week join Lakeside Arts audiences on a richly imaginative journey led by two dancers, in Panda’s Home. This performance, suitable for ages 4+, will teach children about the Chinese Five Elements through encounters in bamboo forests, and with fireworks, kites, and monsters. This brand new visual, digital, and dance performance is a collaboration between TPO and Chinese artists.


Saturday 3rd March. Concluding the programme of events is the 6th Si Yuan Cup Table Tennis Tournament at the David Ross Sports Village  Table tennis players of all ages, ethnicities and abilities are welcome to enter the tournament. Free taster sessions will also be on offer.
