Happy Chinese New Year everybody! Today we begin celebrations all over the beautiful city of Birmingham to usher in the Chinese New Year – Year of the Dog!
Our very own Denise Sheasby has been celebrating the Chinese New Year with Chris Brewerton of Birmingham City Football Club and the Chinese Lion!
A special thanks go out to Birmingham City Football Club for their kind invitation to join them in all the festivities of the day.
The celebrations have been taking place on Colmore Row. St Philips Cathedral has been chosen as the wonderful venue for a splendid concert from the extremely talented Birmingham Conservatoire.
We thanks, James Wong, Chair of the Chinese Festival Committee in Birmingham, and the whole committee for the hard work and effort in organising such a fabulous event.
There will be a Chinese Lion Dance procession to Chung Ying Central with excellent refreshments on offer for the duration of the festival. Special thanks go out to Brewin Dolphin and Colemore Bid for sponsoring the event.
