Celebrate Chinese New Year
Traditional Chinese New Year celebrations will take place at the Old Savoy theatre on Saturday, 28 January, to welcome in the year of the rat.
A range of vibrant performances, including circus acts, dancing and music, are set to take to the stage between noon and 3pm, with stalls selling authentic Chinese trinkets and products open from 11am.
The free event, organised by the Northamptonshire Chinese Society, the Deco Theatre and Northampton Borough Council, will also feature a giant lucky cat and a Chinese dragon, created by arts company Festive Road.
A martial arts display, fire breathing contortionists and a traditional mask changing artist will be among the entertainment highlights, along with a Chinese magician and an acrobatic duo.
