Celebrating Mid Autumn Festival in Chinatown, Birmingham

The Chinese Festival Committee Birmingham, invited me to an evening of celebrations for Mid-Autumn Festival at the Arcadian, Birmingham

On the 16th September, I enjoyed an evening of lion dancing, martial arts, music and fireworks to celebrate Mid-Autumn festival in Chinatown, Birmingham. As I spent a fortnight in China during the summer, it was so lovely to take part and have fun parading around Grand Central with the Chinese Festival Committee Birmingham. I really miss China, I had an amazing time there and everyone was so friendly and welcoming so I was so happy to celebrate Mid-Autumn festival with the Chinese community of Birmingham.

It was great to see families together enjoying the free entertainment in the Arcadian. I have featured my favourite bits of the night in the video above, so be sure to check it out. The lion dancers were fantastic dancing their way around Ground Central and the streets of Birmingham, the fire dancer was brilliant too, that's something I would really like to try out myself.  The next event the Chinese festival committee are planning is Chinese New Year, so I am looking forward to celebrating that too.

Looking for thing's to do in Birmingham?
