The Isle of Man Chinese Association is inviting residents to celebrate Chinese New Year with them.

It is holding a celebratory three-course banquet at the Majestic Restaurant, in Onchan, on February 9. Chinese New Year is celebrated on Friday (January 31).

It’s the first time the association will celebrate their New Year together – it was only set up last year.

Chairman Jenny Zhou said: ‘Chinese New Year celebration is centuries old and the most important of traditional Chinese holidays.

‘Moreover, Chinese New Year is a time to bring family together, for feasting and celebration.

The Isle of Man Chinese Association will highlight this with authentic cuisine as well as various Asian ancient and modern customs.

‘Please don’t miss this great opportunity to celebrate the Year of the Horse and gain perspective on Chinese art, cuisine and culture.’

The lunch will take place at 1pm, and proceeds from the event will go to the association, a non-profit community group dedicated to introducing Chinese culture and Isle of Man – Chinese cultural exchange.

To book, email or text 266888.

The lunch costs £25 per head for non-members, £18 for members, and £10 for children under 12 and residents aged over 65.
