About the event

This year, Chinese New Year falls on 25 January, with the main London festivities taking place the day after. You'll find celebrations all over the West End, from Shaftesbury Avenue down to Trafalgar Square. Expect tons of food options in Chinatown, main stage performances in Trafalgar Square and loads more family-friendly entertainment at the family zone in Leicester Square, along with more things to see and do along Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road.


What's Chinese New Year in London without its iconic parade? You'll see the brilliantly colourful floats make their way around central London, with Chinese lions and dragons weaving through Chinatown.


Don't miss out on this huge celebration - it'll be a party for the whole family!
