Celebrate Chinese New Year with Yellow Earth!

Deep in the mountains of ancient China, every thirteenth moon the dreaded monster Nian pays a visit to the village. The villagers must protect themselves but which animal can save them? Come and help scare the monster away. Join young Tom and his family as they prepare for New Year’s Eve and discover the story behind the Lion Dance.

All the excitement, colour and sounds of the Chinese New Year are brought to you in this inventive production featuring live music, song and dance by Yellow Earth, the award winning British East Asian Theatre Company.
