Happy New Year to all of our Chinese friends
The year of the mokey has just started and since we collaborate with a lot of various industries in China, we thought we would share a few fun facts about the Chinese New Year’s celebrations here in the UK – just in case you are visiting.
According to the Chinese calendar the new year starts on 8th of February and ends on 27 January 2017. Thousands of people are expected to mark the occasion in London’s Chinatown and are set to begin on 14th of February. A traditional parade is expected to start at 10 am, with Charing Cross Road as a starting point.
Regent Street will be celebrating Chinese New Year with a traditional Chinese Wishing Tree which will be stationed on Glasshouse Street from 11am – 3pm.
