“We welcome this opportunity to celebrate the Chinese New Year and to promote Chinese culture in the community. In the lunar calendar, the coming year is the year of the Dog. By nature, its characteristics are intelligence and loyalty.

“We sincerely wish that it will be the spirit of 2018. The colourful programme that we have put together will showcase the variety of Chinese performing arts. It will be performed by community and youth artists. We look forward to sharing the show and an enjoyable evening with our audience.”
