Be a part of the carnival with your own creation

A fantastic opportunity to be part of the festival parade at the Lancaster Chinese New Year Carnival!

Our resident artist Pui Lee will be setting up studio at Lancaster City Museum in the run-up to Lancaster Chinese New Year over 4 days. She will be exploring the Chinese folktale of ‘Flower Dragon’ through papercraft and willow lantern making.

On the Saturday before the Carnival, she will open the doors to her studio at the Museum for you to join her and create your own piece of art.

Then be a part of the Chinese New Year Carnival parade with your creation on Sunday, 31st January 2016 at 2pm alongside the mythical Chinese dragons, lions and qilins through the streets of Lancaster city centre.

Please note, all children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
