Spring Festival Fair

The hugely-popular Spring Festival Fair returns to The chq Building for two days of free, family-friendly fun. Inspired by Chinese temple fairs, or ‘Miaohui’, the event combines performances, workshops, storytelling with Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin and more, screenings, demonstrations and games, plus tasty food stalls and special appearances by international visitors.

Come along and have your face painted,  marvel at the Chinese dragon and lion performances, take part in an authentic Chinese tea ceremony, try your hand at Chinese calligraphy, and share your hopes for the Year of the Pig with the Wishing Tree.

And don’t miss a photo opportunity with the Chinese God of Fortune, who will be on hand to send his blessings of luck for 2019.
