If you’re thinking about celebrating Chinese New Year in Liverpool, you’ll be pleased to know there’s more ways to do so than ever before, with events taking place across the city between the 20th and 22nd of January, as well as later in the month.
Alongside visiting exhibitions, screenings, and installations – all of which you can read about below – you can celebrate with us here at Tiger Rock, an authentic Chinese restaurant in Liverpool.
Read on to find out more about what’s in store for you for this Chinese New Year.
This year is the year of the rabbit, the luckiest of the twelve animals used in Chinese symbolism, representing mercy, elegance, and beauty. It’s therefore no wonder that Focal Studios, in partnership with Eleonora Asparuhova and Laura Sullivan, have created ‘The Lunar Rabbit’, an elegant projection show and light installation.
From Friday the 20th through to Sunday the 22nd, this show will run between 5pm and 9pm at St Luke’s Church.
On Sunday January 22nd there will be a host of events and celebrations at Great George Square, beginning at midday day and ending at 5pm.
The day will consist of a variety of performances, starting with Pagoda Arts and continuing with Friendship Dancers, martial arts demonstrations, and many other things.
The day will be concluded by the Bring the Fire Project, which begins at 4.30pm and concludes 5 minutes before the stage closes.
As well as the events and installations above, there are also Lunar New Year Celebrations at FACT and the Lady Lever Art Gallery.
Regarding events at FACT, this includes a conversation and workshop with resident artist April Lin on the 26thand 27th of January, respectively, as well as a tasting menu with LESEAN on January 21st and a lantern making workshop on February 5th, amongst many other things.
On January 28th, the Lady Lever Art Gallery will host a variety of events from 11am onwards, including a performance from the Chinese Cultural Association dance group.
Finally, there will be a range of celebrations around Chinatown and the Chinese Ceremonial Archway. As well as being suitably decorated with Chinese lanterns, there will be plenty of food stalls, art workshops, and a funfair.
Last but not least, why not celebrate the commencement of the year of the rabbit with a meal at Tiger Rock?
With a wide range of Chinese cuisine available, from Bak Choi to Char Sui Fan, our restaurant honours Chinese food heritage by delivering some of the country’s most popular dishes.
With restaurants in both the city centre and the Smithdown Road area, it’s easy to find a delicious, convenient way to celebrate – you could even join us once the main festivities are over.
