Celebrate Lunar New Year with us in the Lounge! 

Lunar New Year – or Chinese New Year – may be something you celebrate annually as part of your heritage; or something you have never experienced before. Regardless of your culture or beliefs, we invite everyone (home and international students, and staff) to join in with this fantastic event, brimming with food, crafts, games and fun!

The celebrations will kick off with some delicious traditional foods (dumplings, spring rolls and mandarins anyone?), before hearing from speakers Stella Wang and Young Kim on how they celebrate Chinese, and Lunar New Year in China and South Korea. We guarantee you will learn some new and interesting facts from our brilliant speakers, as they share their traditions with us.

Afterwards there will be a variety of wonderful activities for you to get stuck into, including:

  • bangai kite-making
  • Mahjong game
  • calligraphy workshop
  • wooden lantern-making

This event is completely free and availability is limited so booking is essential to guarantee your place.

N.B. this event is running twice – from 12 to 2:30 pm, and again from 4 to 6:30 pm. If you would prefer to attend the evening event, you can book here.
