Lantern Festival Celebration

You might know how the Chinese New Year begins. But what do you know about how it ends? Celebrate the final day of Spring Festival the traditional way, with sweet dumplings (tangyuan), lanterns and riddles!

Please note: Due to the current epidemic situation this event may be changed or cancelled at short notice. Please contact us for the latest information.


The lantern festival falls on February 5th this year, and has been celebrated in China for almost two thousand years, and although the festival isn’t celebrated on a large scale in modern China, we think it deserves to be marked! So we put together this celebration, which takes place the day before the festival on Saturday February 4th 2023. At this workshop, you’ll learn about the festival, then assemble and paint your own palace lantern before enjoying tangyuan (sweet dumplings) while solving riddles (a traditional activity at the lantern festival)!

This workshop will be held twice on the 4th, once in the morning for younger children (6+), and once in the afternoon for older children (12+). Adults are welcome at both! Note that the morning session is slightly shorter than the afternoon session. In the afternoon we’ll welcome an expert painter to teach us how to paint a Spring Festival design on our lanterns, whereas in the morning you are free to create your own designs!
