Chinese New Year 2019 – The Year of the Pig

Another fantastic event on campus.

On the 8th February 2019, more than 1000 visitors and students from 9 schools in the North West had the opportunity to celebrate Chinese New Year at Edge Hill University.




The Hub was transformed into a  Chinese

Street Market, where 14 Chinese themed stalls showcased Chinese culture:  calligraphy, tea ceremony,  Chinese Games, Chinese snacks, paper cutting, origami, Chinese painting and more.   Visitors were able to participate in traditional arts and crafts, try traditional Chinese food and more than 300 school children took part in Kung Fu and

Dragon Dance workshops.





In the evening JinLong wowed the audience with their New Year Extravaganza – an amazing fast paced professional performance showcasing acrobats performing spectacular balancing acts, contortion, feet juggling, Chinese opera and very popular Lion Dance.
