Part of Lancaster & Morecambe Chinese New Year Festival 2013.
The Hua Xian Chinese Society brings the festival spirit with colour, taste and fun to Lancaster Library for Chinese New Year.
We hosted a day of fun activities for children and families at Lancaster’s Central Library where amongst the books we treated visitors to tasty Chinese snacks, opportunities to try calligraphy and tai chi too.
We also had volunteers running fun educational workshops telling the stories and traditions surrounding Chinese New Year.
Children could also take part in arts and crafts with paper cutting and origami where they could take back a little bit of Chinese New Year home!
