Chinese New Year Celebrations 2017

This year we've come full circle since we first celebrated Chinese New Year in 2005, and so, in 2017 we welcome the year of the Rooster. In a break with recent tradition, thye brilliant digital artist Barret Hodgson (responsible for extraordinary mapping projections at Derby Silk Mill during Festé and at Frequency Festival) is creating a fabulous and original digital projection on the south façade of the iconic Trent Building which celebrates the arrival of the new year.

The projection will run at half-hourly intervals from a vantage point opposite the Trent Building. Meet at the DH Lawrence Pavilion stanchion with your tickets in hand in order to be led up to the viewing position.

More events will be announced in December. Please look out for the Chinese New Year Brochure or check back on this page, or at lakesidearts.org.uk/CNY.
