Chung launches new Festival to mark Chinese New Year
Chinese entrepreneur Andy Chung of Glasgow’s Amber Regent has been the power house behind a desire to create a Chinese Festival for Glasgow to celebrate Chinese New Year. As a result of his efforts Glasgow’s newly formed Chinese New Year Festival Association, will bring the Chinese Year of the Golden Monkey Arts Performance and Ethnic/Traditional Costumes Festival to George Square on 7th February for the first time.
Andy Chung told DRAM, “There are Chinese festivals all over the world from London to San Fransisco, where people come together to celebrate Chinese New Year. Now Scotland too will have its annual event in the shape of our new Festival, which has been supported by Glasgow City Council.” Andy, who is Chairman of the Festival has also received support from the .Consulate of the People’s Republic of China, MSP’s, the Chinese community and Chinese Student Association.
He says, “I am very grateful for all the support we have received, and when you see line-up of entertainment that we have organized including Dragon Dancing, the Lion Dance, Martial Arts, as well as Chinese National dance performances, not to mention traditional Chinese music alongside some traditional Scottish Bag pipes, I’m sure people will see why it is important to celebrate Chinese New Year in Scotland. We hope it will bring some Chinese festive spirit to Glasgow.”
