Chinese New Year 2015

Chinese New Year 2015

19 – 22 February 2015

Manchester hosted its largest party yet to welcome in the Year of the Ram, with thousands of red lanterns decorating the city’s shopping streets. Celebrating traditional and contemporary Chinese culture, events included a Chinese food fair in St Ann’s Square, alongside live music, performances and light shows, Cai Guo-Qiang’s installation ‘Unmanned Nature’ at the newly reopened Whitworth Art Gallery, family craft events at Manchester Art Gallery, customisations, designer appearances and themed events across city centre stores – and the famous dragon parade and fireworks finale.
