The Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, is the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese Calendar. Every year, the Cambridge Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CAM-CSSA) holds the Cambridge Chinese New Year Gala at the Corn Exchange to celebrate this most important traditional Chinese festival with students, scholars, and residents in Cambridge, as well as people from other areas in the UK. The Gala features unique Chinese traditional decorations and breath-taking performances as well as gorgeous stage and sound effects.

The year of 2020 is the Year of Rat, the beginning of a new 12-year cycle of animal zodiac. The theme of this year’s gala is “The Night of Cambridge Cadenza”. The Gala will again feature grand performances such as traditional Chinese dance, traditional Chinese Orchestra, traditional Chinese Opera, Xiangsheng, Sketch etc. Famous Chinese Singers and celebrities will also join and give performance at the Gala. Whether you are Chinese or not, you are welcomed to join us for this special occasion.
