Chinese New Year

by Kate Powell, Down2Earth Magazine editor

Is there anyone who is going to Soho and celebrate the Chinese New Year on Saturday?

I hope you will get to go. There will be fireworks, have a look around in China town, it’s worth it.

For anyone who hasn’t been before it’s great fun to be celebrating, it’s like a street party and they dress in beautiful costumes.

It has a story behind it, you can have dinner, they have lots of different smells of Chinese cuisine. Something for the whole family and friends to enjoy.

It is the year of the Rooster now, 2017, what a wonderful start to the year.

Today is also Burns Night too. You can find out more about Burns Night here.
