China in Your Hand

Chinese New Year always makes us aware of the amazing benefits of living in multicultural London. The biggest celebration outside Asia takes place in Trafalgar Square this Sunday. And it’s crammed with the stuff that kids love; dragons and lions, martial arts (with sticks!), magic, firecrackers, noodles, drums and looooads of people having fun (if you’ve got really little ones, we’d take a backpack or carrier rather than a pushchair!) Chinatown itself will be rammed, but if you’re feeling brave, explore its narrow streets and back alleys for a more authentic (and louder) experience. Kung Hei Fat Choi! Free 10am-6pm More here
