Chinese New Year

Year of the Ox

Chinese New Year, otherwise known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival takes place on 12 February 2021. It marks the transition between zodiac signs and the beginning of the Year of the Ox.

Tower Hamlets are working in partnership with the Chinese Association of Tower Hamlets and the Community of Refugees from Vietnam to present an online programme available throughout half term. This includes a breath-taking Lion Dance, a traditional crafts workshop and some mouth-watering dishes to try your hand at.
