Celebrate Chinese New Year in Liverpool

On Sunday 26 January, Chinese New Year festivities in Liverpool will see traditional Chinese culture blended with modern performances to create must-see street, stage and music acts, aerial demonstrations, family workshops, a fairground along with the hugely popular dragon, unicorn and lion parades and firecracker displays.

The market will also make a return to George Street selling gifts, souvenirs and mouth-watering food.

The free celebrations will all take place over one day, Sunday 26th January, starting at 11am and finishing around 5pm.

Building up to the main day of activity, thousands of Chinese lanterns will adorn the city centre streets, and from Friday 10 January a number of buildings will be illuminated in red in honour of the new year – signifying good fortune and joy to everyone.

These buildings are the Cunard Building, Liverpool Town Hall, St George’s Hall, Central Library Picton Colonnades, Toxteth Library, World Museum, Open Eye Gallery, Everyman & Playhouse Theatres and Mersey Tunnels George’s Dock Building.
