Chinese New Year

If you're planning on celebrating the start of the Chinese New Year in London (Monday 8th February 2016, with the main parade on Sunday 14th February 2016), no doubt you'll be all set with a bright costume, homemade lantern and a mission to take on all the best restaurants in Chinatown.

What does the year of the monkey mean?   

If you were born in the year of the Monkey (1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and now 2016) you're said to be witty, intelligent and have a magical personality - sound familiar? 'Monkey people' are also considered to be massive practical jokers and are known for their mischievousness, curiosity and naughtiness.
