The Worcestershire Chinese Association was established by Chairman Frankie Tsang in 1999 as a non-profit, voluntary and community sector organisation serving the interests of the local Chinese community. Frankie leads the Association to promote Chinese culture across Worcestershire to bridge language and understanding gaps between the Chinese and local communities. The Association has organised Chinese New Year celebrations in the City Centre since 2000 and holds regular fundraising events for local charities and the UK Chinese Education Foundation.
2023 is a year of the Water Rabbit, starting from January 22nd, 2023 (Chinese New Year), and ending on February 9th, 2024 (Chinese New Year’s Eve). The sign of Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture. It is said that people born in a year of the Rabbit are called “Rabbits” and are believed to be vigilant, witty, quick-minded, and ingenious.
We look forward to welcome the whole of the Worcestershire community on the 29th January 2023 to help celebrate the Chinese New Year in Worcester.
