Chinese New year Celebration in Nottingham 2009

If you ask me to pick one of the most interesting events held in Nottingham, I shall tell you that the Chine New Year celebration at Lakeside Centre/ Highfield Park is the best I have experienced!

Even if you are not fancy about culture arts or performance, you must go for the fireworks finale! The fireworks display is out of this world, one of the best I ever see! So be quick, jolt this date down in your diary, 1st February 2009, 430pm onwards. Be there or be square!
