Chinese New Year: Year of the Rat

Join us for our Chinese New Year celebrations this February!

Welcome in the Year of the Rat with spectacular traditional and contemporary performances, stalls, workshops and activities.

Stalls throughout the museum will feature elements of Chinese culture, there will be a delicious Chinese inspired menu in the café and beautiful Chinese goods for sale in the shop.

You can also pick up one of our rat detective trails to search for rats throughout the museum!

The Year of the Rat starts on 25 January 2020. According to the Chinese Zodiac people born in a year of the Rat are instinctive, sophisticated and popular. People born in this year have gold, blue and green as their lucky colours.

This event is supported by the China National Tourist Office. With thanks to our event sponsors University of Bristol and UWE Bristol.
