Welcome in the Year of the Tiger at Bullring and Grand Central with a day of FREE performances on Saturday 5th February 2022.
Between Noon and 5pm, shoppers and visitors to the central Birmingham can enjoy the traditional, and much loved, lion dance and processions through Bullring and Grand Central as well as a packed programme featuring fan dancers, shaolin monks and face changing dancers.
Produced with Birmingham Hippodrome and supported by the Chinese Festival Committee Birmingham and Chinese Community Centre Birmingham, Chinese New Year in Birmingham will welcome in the Year of the Tiger. 2022 is specifically the year of the Water Tiger, running from 1 February 2022 until 21 January 2023. The Tiger is known as the king of all beasts in China and the zodiac sign Tiger is a symbol of strength, exorcising evils, and braveness.
James Wong, Chairman of the Chinese Festival Committee Birmingham said:
I am delighted to be working in collaboration with such brilliant partners to celebrate the Year of the Tiger at Bullring and Grand Central. Throughout our annual celebrations, we also encourage people to support the Chinese community and businesses in Southside. Kung Hey Fat Choi for 2022.”

Our Chinese New Year celebrations in 2020 had a wonderful response from visitors and we are so pleased to be working with Birmingham Hippodrome and the Chinese Festival Committee Birmingham to bring Chinese New Year back to Bullring and Grand Central. The lion dance procession is a firm favourite in our calendar and we look forward to shoppers joining us for a day of celebrations.”

The celebrations will mark the start of another exciting year of cultural events produced with Bullring and Grand Central. Chinese New Year is one of our favourite annual community events we produce.”
