Celebrate Lunar New Year 2022 in Chinatown London

Celebrate Lunar New Year 2022 in Chinatown London

The days are getting longer, which means winter is coming to an end and the promise of spring is upon us! The beginning of spring also marks one of East and Southeast Asia’s most important holidays – the Lunar New Year. And really, where better to celebrate than under the iconic red lanterns in Chinatown London?

Whilst the LCCA’s annual Lunar New Year parade won’t be going ahead this year – the festivities must, and will go on.

Usher in the Year of the Tiger with these alternative ways to celebrate in Chinatown London.

Night Market + Lion Dancing

No celebration is complete without a Lion Dance. On the evening of 31st January, expect to see animated “lions” leaping and bouncing to the beat of drums and clash of cymbals. What’s more, a special Night Market will be taking place at the same time serving up all sorts of tasty dishes and Lunar New Year delights. An evening not to be missed.

 

Enjoy a celebratory feast

Reuniting with family and friends over a feast is central to the festivities. Many restaurants in Chinatown London will be serving celebratory dishes, each with their own traditional symbolism over the festive period. Think New Year’s Cake ‘nian gao’, prawns and Yu Sheng “Prosperity Toss” salad and much more. Discover the celebratory dishes enjoyed over the Lunar New Year and where you can find them in Chinatown London.

 

Try the LNY limited edition specials

Restaurants, dessert shops and bars alike will be offering limited edition Lunar New Year specials and celebratory offers over this auspicious festival. From a festive cocktails menu at Opium, Tiger-striped crispy wings from Wing Wing to Tiger macarons from Yolkin and Lucky Parcels from Sakurado, the festive specials are endless and there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
