Officially beginning on Saturday 28 January, celebrate the Year of the Rooster in 2017 with traditional and contemporary Chinese cultural events at Nottingham Lakeside Arts which people of all ages can participate in and enjoy.

Led by Dragon Dancers and in a spectacular world premiere, Nottingham-based digital artist Barret Hodgson will illuminate Nottingham University's iconic Trent Building with Jixiang (Propitious) a visual feast of digital projections which capture contemporary and traditional elements of Chinese art and culture. There will be six different opportunities to see the projection over the course of two nights on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 January. The event is FREE but booking is essential.
