Press Release for Chinese New Year Celebration in St Michaels
Lion to Lark about in the Lane
A dancing lion will be let loose in Lark Lane on Saturday 18th January. But don’t worry, he’s family friendly and in a party mood! This creature will be celebrating the Chinese Year of the Horse as part of China Pearl’s programme at Lark Lane Community Centre (the Old Police Station).
That’s not all! From midday until 3pm, a colourful cultural programme of free performances and workshops in dance, martial arts, music, arts and crafts will be on offer for the young and the young at heart.
Director of China Pearl Fenfen Huang enthused, “We’re really excited to celebrate Chinese New Year here in St Michael’s. Even though I often pop down here to shop, socialise and eat, as a company we’ve never worked in this neighbourhood before. I’m so happy and grateful that Community First Foundation are supporting this event, and hope that both residents and visitors will enjoy a taste of Chinese culture by Sefton Park.”
She added, “Celebrations will be happening in the city centre, too, but I feel this will help add a more intimate opportunity for people to get together as friends and family, to enjoy each other’s company whilst experiencing a bit of culture. People like to get involved in this great city, just like we do in China!”
