What’s on this weekend and soon
Chinese New Year celebrations – Sunday 29 January
Welcome in the Year of the Rooster, which will fill most of the West End with music, acrobatics, activities and pyrotechnics. A grand parade featuring lion dance teams will set off from Trafalgar Square, weaving its way up to the buzzing heart of Chinatown. On Wardour Street and Gerrard Street you’ll find craft stalls, Chinese food stands and more traditional dance, plus a stage on Shaftesbury Avenue will host local up-and-coming talent. The party will kick off at 10:00am, with performances ranging from comedy to acrobatics. Naturally the 100-odd restaurants, bars and cafés in the area will be celebrating too, with special menus and their own events on offer.
