Local museum to celebrate Chinese New Year

 Published on: 18th January 2017   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

There’s another new year celebration on the horizon as thousands across the country gear up for Chinese New Year, and the Heath Robinson Museum is at the centre of all the local celebrations this weekend. This year is the Year of the Rooster, one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. The last Year of the Rooster was 2005. The event, arranged by the team at the Heath Robinson Museum, is a family event, fun for children and adults alike. There is no pre-booking and people can just drop in either in the morning or in the afternoon on Sunday, January 22. Claire Linge, learning officer at the museum, said: “This is a great way to spend a winter’s day, bringing a bit of lightness and fun into the weekend. We are hoping lots of parents and children or those on their own who fancy trying out a few things will come and experiment with us”. The museum itself is re-opening that very weekend so there will be no better way to enjoy The Chinese Spring Festival than to visit the museum with its new Brothers Robinson Special Exhibition or to explore Chinese arts and enjoy a few hours at the Year of the Rooster celebrations in West House.
