Lion Dances

23 January to 7 February

Various locations

A celebration dating back over a thousand years, martial arts performers mimic lions’ movements while dressed in larger than life lion costumes.

Performing to the sounds of drum and gongs; this flamboyant and acrobatic performance wards off evil spirits, bringing good luck and fortune. 

Da Hung Lion Dance and Kung Fu will astound with their acrobatic skills at the Chinese New Year Celebration Day on 1 February. With over 10 years’ experience this troupe lead by world renowned Wushu Champion Master Sifu Wilson Chan is always a crowd favourite.
