Welcome to the series of videos about 2022 Lunar New Year Celebrations and Chinese Valentine's Day!
We hope you will enjoy the videos. Happy New Year and warmest wishes to all!
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it was our first virtual Lunar New Year celebration in 2021. We have many greeting videos from our lovely partners & supporters, as well as some learning tutorials on making decorated lantern by recycling the red packets from our volunteers.
Everyone who attended the Bournemouth Library in February 2020 could join an amazing show to celebrate Chinese New Year. Over 200 guests attended the event, and VIP guests included the Mayor of Bournemouth Cllr. Susan Phillips, the Leader of Councilor Cllr. Vikki Slade, Cllr. Lawrence Williams, Cllr. Jane Kelly, Mr. David Jones, Cllr. Lewis Allison, Ms. Beryl Baxter, Mr. Chris Saunders, Linda Maquire, Lianne Chorley, Barry Meehan.
All participants could enjoy a wide range of traditional activities and fantastic performances, including the mask making competition, singing, dancing, gymnastics and acting.
It has been an annual new year celebration for our Bournemouth Chinese School team to perform traditional dance and music at the Bournemouth library. Get to know more about the story of Wisdom Foundation from our blog post written by 2018/19 student placement, Xiaoli Wang.
In 2018, we have organised a Qipao (Chinese traditional dress) catwalk contest show along with the new year celebration with one of our key supporters - Jiang Chipao. Some of our students from the Bournemouth Chinese School project have won a couple of titles from the catwalk contest and showcased their singing talent on stage!
