Chinese New Year is the finale to the annual Festival of Light programme and attracts approximately 400 people each year.

Professional dancers, musicians and other artists work with schools and community groups to create a huge range of performing and visual art work to display. We run public workshops at Erewash Museum on approach to the final event, where children and families can participate in arts activities, such as creating lanterns to bring along to the procession. The procession leaves the museum and travels through the town centre, ending on the market square where a spectacle of performance by local children takes place.
