Join other Who Londoners for a Chinese New Year lunch! LIMITED SPACES.

We have managed to reserve three large tables for Who Londoners at Joy’s Chinese Restaurant in Holborn (it’s near impossible to reserve in Chinatown for Chinese New Year). Our Who London host will welcome you there at noon and at 1.30pm your group will walk 13 minutes and take in together the amazing atmosphere of the New Year celebrations in Chinatown, the largest outside Asia.

Although Chinese New Year itself is on 25th January, London’s streets are celebrating on Sunday 26th January. It’s the Year of the Rat and it’s believed that people born in the Year of the Rat are intelligent and outgoing, industrious and thrifty, diligent and positive! The Rat is the first of the 12 animals in the Chinese Astrology cycle, so 2020 is considered a year of new beginnings and renewals.

Meet some Who Londoners for an early Chinese lunch before restaurants get ultra busy and then there is also plenty of time to enjoy Chinatown’s celebrations together. Your ticket is for our planning, organising and bringing you all together. You will order from the appetising menu and pay for your food and drink individually on the day.

Continuing the celebrations from 10am from Charing Cross Road to Leicester Square, Chinatown will be buzzing from 12pm-6pm with colourful displays, lively parades and lion dancing! (There will also be a closing display in Trafalgar Square later on.)

Don’t forget to wear something red for Chinese New Year and go somewhere high up for good luck!
