SOUTHAMPTON CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION 2019

We are proud to be Southampton’s official organiser for this year’s Chinese New Year Celebrations on Saturday 2nd February 2019 (endorsed by Southampton City Council). We have partnered up with Solent University and the Confucius Institution to create Southampton’s largest Chinese New Year celebrations to date. Join us to welcome in the lunar New Year of the Earth Pig, with colorful performances, parades and displays in and around the heart of Southampton: Southampton’s Guildhall Square.

About

Every year thousands of people come together in Southampton to enjoy the colourful parades, the vibrant stage performances, the delicacies of traditional Chinese food, and partaking in traditional customs – giving thanks to the blessings of the past year and celebrating all the hard work, but bringing about good fortune for the New Year.

This year in particularly is significant because the Pig is the last animal of the twelve-year zodiac cycle.  It is therefore a time for reflection and plays even more importance on friendships, family, love and togetherness.

The Significance of Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year has been celebrated for centuries in China and all around Asia. It is also known as the Spring Festival and the Lunar New Year, and marks the start of the new Lunar Year. An array of colourful celebrations usually start on the last day of the last month in the Chinese lunar calendar, and end on the 15th day of the first month with the spectacular Lantern Festival.
