Chinese New Year 2017 weather forecast

2017 is the year of the rooster

Sat 28 Jan 2017

Join the largest celebration of the Chinese New Year outside of Asia, when Chinatown London becomes a giant street party.

Last year's event saw 300,000 people join the celebrations throughout Chinatown, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square, and this year should be no different. The streets will be filled with colour as visiting Chinese acrobats and musicians parade with giant Chinese dragons and lions. The night culminates with a spectacular fireworks display over Leicester Square.

Further celebrations are held across the UK over the weekend including events in Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle.

The official Chinese New Year starts on Saturday 28 January. Each year in the Chinese Lunar Calendar is represented by an animal, and 2017 is the year of the rooster.
