Come along to the museum on Sunday 14 February and help us welcome in the Chinese New Year of the Monkey. This colourful and vibrant festival will include traditional Dragon and Lion dances, firecrackers, magic, acrobats and Chinese folk dancing. New for this year are Tai Chi demonstrations which are a flowing visually beautiful performance based on the movements of the White Crane bird and include balance, coordination and moving meditation. In our theatre there will be performances from children from the local Chinese Sunday school and an extract of Cantonese Opera performed in full cultural costume. Crafts activities will be taking place throughout the day and include Chinese painting, writing and origami. Supported by the Friends of the Potteries Museums & Art Gallery and the Appetite programme
