Gunwharf Quays to celebrate the Year of the Pig

Gunwharf Quays is gearing up for a spectacular Chinese New Year celebration on the weekend of the 9th and 10th of February.  Observing the Year of the Pig, the day promises to be a memorable event complete with dazzling entertainment and incredible offers.

With entertainment from the UK Shaolin Temple, guests will have the chance to witness a mesmerising traditional dragon dance accompanied by spectacular drum artists and a martial arts demonstration. Visitors will also have the opportunity to watch the fascinating lion dance as it visits different locations across the centre on the lookout for its favourite delicacy, lettuce.

In keeping with the traditional Chinese New Year custom of ‘Hongbao’, where a red envelope containing money is gifted to loved ones as a sign of good luck - Gunwharf Quays will be offering lucky visitors red envelopes containing exclusive discounts across many of the centre’s famous brands. Offers include 20% off outlet prices at Karen Millen, Cath Kidston and Zwilling.

Colin Wilding, General Manager at Gunwharf Quays, said: “We are once again delighted to bring the community together, both locally and internationally, to celebrate Chinese New Year. The mix of lively music, traditional dance and martial arts, promises to be an unforgettable experience for the whole family. And for those guests looking for an additional reason to shop, our Chinese New Year red envelopes are a must.”

This year one of the newest additions to the centre will be getting involved with the celebrations. Whittard of Chelsea will be hosting a tea expert in store on Saturday 9th offering tea tastings to visitors and the opportunity to win a special goody bag.
