Community & Culture

The MCN 2020 Chinese New Year celebration will be a great evening to explore and celebrate Chinese culture with various entertainment & food

Chinese New Year begins on 25 January 2020 and will mark the start of the Year of the Rat, the first of the Zodiac animals.

If you were born in 1996, 1984, 1972 or 1960, your Chinese Zodiac sign is the Rat, and the last year of the rat was in 2008.

The Deloitte Multicultural Network's 2020 Chinese New Year celebration will be a great evening to explore and celebrate Chinese culture with a variety of entertainment and cuisine.

Dr Cheng Yu, a renowned pipa lute and guqin zither virtuoso, will be performing a selection of her pieces. Comedian Evelyn Mok will be delivering a laugher filled talk about her life and experience growing up in Sweden.

We will also have music performances by the SOAS Silk and Bamboo Chinese Music Ensemble. The LSE Confucius Institute will run a number of stalls where you can learn about Chinese calligraphy and tea ceremonies. Traditional Chinese cuisine and drinks will be served throughout the evening.
