Head down to the iconic landmark during the weekend to see a red and gold light show illuminate the sky every hour from 4pm, to mark the arrival of the Year of the Rooster.
There will also be guest appearances by Kung Fu Panda, special performances, fortune cookies and some on-the-spot “surprise and delight” moments to enjoy over the Chinese New Year weekend.
Chinese New Year is a huge festival among Chinese communities in London and across the world.
Based on the lunar and solar calendars, the actual date of Chinese New Year varies, but always falls between late January and mid-February. Each year in the Chinese calendar is represented by one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Chinese New Year 2017, the Year of the Rooster, falls on 28 January.
