About the event

Come and welcome the Year of the Dog as London celebrates Chinese New Year 2018.

The fun starts at 10am with a dragon and lion dance in Charing Cross Road followed by a colourful parade of floats down Shaftesbury Avenue to Trafalgar Square.

From 12pm in Trafalgar Square there will be performances on the main stage featuring traditional Chinese dance and music shows, contemporary hip-hop acts and an exciting line-up of artists from China

Don't miss the pyrotechnic display which lights up Trafalgar Square to mark the end of the festivities.

Chinese New Year dates are determined by the luni-solar Chinese calendar, which means the date changes every year. This year Chinese New Year falls on 16th February but will be celebrated on Sunday 18th February.
