Welcome to Chinese New Year 2022!

Amidst the shortest and darkest days of the year, we’re hoping to bring some cheer with stunning digital projections on the iconic Trent building. Reflecting both traditional and contemporary Chinese culture, Xīwàng (Hope) will mark the imminent arrival of the Spring Festival on 1 February and welcome The Year of the Tiger.

The third of the Zodiac Animals, the Tiger is known as the king of all beasts in China and is a symbol of strength, exorcising evils and braveness. In China, many children will wear hats or shoes with a tiger image for good luck.

The Spring Festival – also known as the Lunar Festival and most commonly as Chinese New Year – is the most widely celebrated occasion in the Asian Calendar. We’ve participated in celebrations at the University together with our local partners and communities since 2005 to coincide with the first year of the University of Nottingham in China, in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province. We continue to share these celebrations as part of a global community, but also to bring cheer in the coldest and darkest time of the year.
