The Year of the Rat is approaching, and we look forward to the Chinese New Year celebrations at Corus Hotels starting on 25th January. Staying with us then? Take a look at some of the ways you get involved and mark the occasion.
London’s festivities are the largest outside of Asia as Chinatown, Trafalgar Square and the West End play host to a spectacular parade, stage shows, celebration zones and delicious food on Sunday 26th January. Stay at Corus Hotel Hyde Park, just a short tube journey away from the celebrations or base yourself just a 30-minute train ride outside of the city at Burnham Beeches Hotel.
Join 30,000 others from 11:30am-4:00pm on 26th January in the Chinatown area of the city in and around the Arcadian Centre in Hurst Street. Suitable for all ages, indulge in authentic Chinese street food and enjoy vibrant Chinese music from artists across multiple stages. Stay at The Regency Hotel in Solihull, a half an hour drive away from the city centre.
Events are taking place across the weekend, including Manchester’s famous red lanterns, a Giant Golden Dragon in St Anne’s Square, live performances and the legendary Dragon Parade from 12:30pm in St Peter’s Square outside the Central Library, finishing in the city’s Chinatown. Stay at The Hillcrest Hotel in Widnes, just under an hour’s car journey away.
New Year festivities on Merseyside will also be taking place on 26th January, with Chinese lanterns going up around the city in the build up to the big day. Check out Europe’s oldest Chinatown as traditional Chinese culture meets the modern age featuring everything from street, stage and musical acts and aerial demonstrations to family workshops and the iconic Chinese dragon. Don’t forget to sample gifts, souvenirs and food at the market on George Street. Stay at The Hillcrest Hotel in Widnes less than 30 minutes away.
