Chinese New Year celebrations welcomed in the Year of the Dog!

Sun 18 Feb between 11.30am and 4.30pm, FREE

Birmingham Hippodrome co-produced Chinese New Year 2018 with the Chinese Festival Committee.

As part of the day’s festivities in Chinatown, there were performances from Rosie Kay Dance Company, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Chinese acrobats and circus performers, and much more in both Southside Square and our Patrick Studio.

There were also free craft workshops where families could make their own drum, Chinese lanterns, spiral dragons or masks, or add their name to our graffiti wall.
