Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is one of the most important and widely celebrated festivals in Chinese culture.
Chinese New Year marks the beginning of the lunar new year and typically falls between 21 January and 20 February. The festival is also a time for feasting and honouring ancestors, during this time, families come together to clean and decorate their homes, symbolising the removal of bad luck and the welcoming of good fortune.
Join Redbridge Libraries for some special craft activities to begin the Lunar New Year, where children can create their own Chinese New Year decorations.
