Great Success of 2016 Chinese Lantern Festival

We organized an event on 21st February 2016 at the Black-E to celebrate Chinese Lantern Festival to mark the end of Chinese New Year with dance, music, Tai Chi, singing, costumes and Flashmob performances, workshops, short films, dumpling sampling and stalls. It was a very successful event; we had around 100 people involved and 700 people visiting the event with a lot of families and children and received great feedback. We had audience from Liverpool, Manchester, North Wales and performers from Merseyside, Birmingham and Yorkshire. 

Here are some comments from an audience and participants:
  • Can I say I was absolutely moved by all the artists I'd seen. Fabulous! What a great reach to include all cultures. I think we need more. 
  • What a lovely celebration of Chinese culture, beautifully sung, danced and played. Well done!
  • “Beautiful festival. Very educational and fun for families. Thank you!"
