Lanterns in St Annes Square, Manchester, for the Chinese New Year

Things kick off on 18 January as the city decks its halls (and streets) with 3,000 Chinese lanterns; the bright red decorations stretch out across not just Chinatown but Manchester's main shopping streets. From 30 January - 1 February, St. Ann's Square plays host to a Chinese food market - expect tasty offerings from Chinatown's best restaurants. The Northern Quarter's Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art also gets in on the act: it is commissioning local illustrator, Lydia Meiying, to create a horse-themed installation in its picture windows (14 January-10 February).
