The Chinese New Year in Manchester

Vibrant colours and a celebration-feel lifted the spirits in Manchester city centre as the Chinese New Year Celebrations took hold in several places, from Exchange Square to Deansgate and China Town.   The sketching took place Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th January (although the celebrations were actually a four day event with New Years Day being Saturday 28th January), trying to capture some of this ‘sense of occasion’ in sketches. From the costumes to the dancing and decorations, the colours and the crowds, it was a festival for the eyes and ears and a challenge for the most determined of sketching spirits! You can read more about the occasion and each of the pieces here on the blog.
