There was plenty to keep visitors entertained as London Chinatown welcomed the Chinese New Year. A noisy and colourful parade started proceedings in the morning. From midday, Trafalgar Square played host to live music and dance performances on a big stage. Meanwhile, community performance areas dotted throughout the area hosted music and martial arts displays.

The many restaurants of Chinatown joined in the fun by setting up stalls on the street. Steaming dim sum, noodle & rice dishes and freshly baked custard tarts and buns were all on offer to revellers. Despite the best efforts of the inclement weather, the atmosphere was fun and lively.
