Hello Chinese Association members,

Moon festival (Zhongqiujie) is on the 15th September 2016 this year, come join the celebration at Beijing Restaurant and enjoy eating moon cakes together.  Moon cakes will be provided by the Chinese Association.                                                              

Moon festival is one of the most important traditional festivals for the Chinese people and is an official holiday in China. It is known as a day for family reunion.  On the Chinese calendar the festival occurs on the 15th day of the 8th Chinese lunar month every year. During this day the moon is at its fullest and brightest of the whole year. Everyone gathers together eating moon cakes and appreciating the spectacular beauty of the full moon.

This year a group of ladies have formed a dance group to participate in the Festival of Culture on 29-10-2016, to represent Chinese culture. The Chinese association have been supporting the group with equipment and Beijing Restaurant have been providing their 1st floor as a practice room. The Chinese dance group have been working hard and will be giving an exclusive preview of their fabulous performance. So please come along and show your support for the Chinese dance group.
