In celebration of the Chinese New Year : The year of the Pig. Lakeside Arts Centre, near the University of Nottingham, provided a stage for some great acts.
The Dragon dance, the Lion dance, music, assorted acrobats, Kung Fu display and many school kids, getting involved. There was singing from the Nottingham Chinese School Choir. The grand finale, a fabulous firework display over the lake.
Yesterday, [On Saturday afternoon], various acts performed in the Market Square, Nottingham. Moving on to perforn in The Square, in Beeston town centre.
I so enjoyed these performances, such colour, fun, and exuberance. ..... wicked! A proper sence of culture and identity
As ever, the dragon dance was performed by members of the Nottingham Chinese Students Association and Nottingham Chinese Community Association. And jolly goo dthey are at it too!
