Celebrations: 5th February

Manchester has become a hub for Chinese New Year in Britain, as it boasts the 3rd largest Chinese population in the country, and the airport is no different. On the 5th of February, we’ll be hosting a series of exciting oriental festivities throughout the airport and we’d like to invite all guests to take part:


Watch A Traditional Lion Dance In The Terminal

February 5th


Enjoy a traditional Lion Dance, performed by JinLong, to ward off evil spirits while you’re waiting for your flight. As the Lion dances throughout the terminal, there will be free Chinese snacks and even a pig, for the year of the boar, handing out lucky envelopes.

Listen to the Manchester Airport Choir

February 5th


To celebrate the New Year, the Manchester Airport Choir will be performing Gong Xi and other traditional Chinese pieces welcoming the year of the boar.
