Chinese New Year - Maidenhead

Type:Show / Display

Maidenhead High Street, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 1LB
Chinese New Year - Maidenhead


Maidenhead High Street will welcome in the Chinese Year of the Dog on Saturday 17 February with the noise and colour of some of the biggest Chinese New Year celebrations in the area.

Established in Maidenhead in 1997, performers from the Eagle Claw Kung Fu School UK and the local Chinese and Oriental Community Association (COCA) have teamed up with Maidenhead Town Partnership and Nicholsons Shopping Centre to bring this spectacular event to the town centre for its twelfth year.

The traditional Lion Dance, Kung Fu performance and thunder drumming, producing an exciting display of colour and rhythm, will start at 1pm from the Boy and the Boat statue on the High Street. In the Nicholsons Shopping Centre between 11am and 3pm there will be free Chinese lantern making. Make your lantern before 1pm and join in with the parade.

Steph James, Maidenhead town manager, says: “The Chinese New Year celebrations in Maidenhead are an occasion not to be missed with lots of noise and colour filling the High Street. Come down and enjoy all the fun of Chinese New Year”.

Shifu Julian Dale, Eagle Claw Kung Fu School UK, says: “The Eagle Claw Kung Fu School Lion Dance team are proud to be co-hosting the Maidenhead Chinese New Year Parade, now in our 12 year of performing we work very hard to bring a unique cultural Chinese experience to Maidenhead. Our Team of Lion dance and Kung Fu students work all year round on their skills and abilities to make this event spectacular. I am very proud of my team, they have achieved so much especially the children who will be performing again this year. We can’t wait to welcome everybody at this year’s event.”
