VIDEO: Galloping start to Year of the Horse

Have your say

The Chinese new year got off to a galloping start with a colourful spectacle to herald the Year of the Horse.

The Chinese community joined together at The Venue in Walton High School to celebrate with a two-hour ceremony featuring dancing, singing, music and end of year presentations for top students from the Chinese School in Milton Keynes.

The ‘mane’ attraction was the traditional lion dance, with dancers donning ornate yellow lion heads and performing to rhythmic drumming. The lion dance is believed to bring luck and good fortune for the new year ahead.
