Chinese New Year

Lion Walk Shopping Centre will be marking Chinese New Year this year with a range of activities and events to celebrate the renowned festival in style.

The activities will take place on 6 February from 3.30pm, the day after the Chinese New Year which is traditionally a family day followed by a week of celebrations.

For those looking to kick start their year, the Chinese New Year celebrations will certainly add some colour and flair and be a visual treat for customers.

The multi-talented Chinese acts will offer high impact, attention grabbing performances including fabulous stilt walkers in traditional garb as well as energetic Giant Doll heads performing their captivating ribbon dances.

A historic performance for the Chinese New Year, the Dragon dance will also take place which is performed to scare away evil spirits and drummers will build the energy during the performances.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Elf Workshop

Throughout the Saturdays of December leading up to Christmas (including an extra Sunday on the 23rd), Lion Walk held a special Elf Workshop, allowing children visiting the centre to make their own toys to take home. The Elf Workshop also gave the children an opportunity to meet Santa and had an Elf Yourself area, helping the children to dress up as elves with face paints and hats!

The workshop was exciting for all and a great way to celebrate the festive period, thank you to everyone who visited!
