Royal Docks’ Lunar New Year
Hop into the Year of the Rabbit with an evening of crafts, face painting, food tastings, and live music.
The People and Place of the Royal Docks are at the heart of our programme, and this celebration of East and Southeast Asian cultures reflects the incredibly rich and diverse communities who make their home here in the Royal Docks.
Certain foods are eaten during the Lunar New Year for their symbolic meaning. Lucky food is served during the festival season, which is believed to bring good luck for the coming year. The auspicious symbolism of these foods is based on their pronunciations or appearance. Join us to see, smell, taste and have fun! Produced by FeastFest and led by local residents, artists, and scholars, our food tasting is free to attend but must be booked in advance. All food is meat-free and nut-free, but the food preparation environment may contain nuts. Please be sure to book now to avoid disappointment!
