About Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year is a huge festival among Chinese communities in London and across the world.
Based on the lunar and solar calendars, the actual date of Chinese New Year varies, but always falls between late January and mid February.
Each year in the Chinese calendar is represented by one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac.
