Event details

Lunar New Year (also known as Chinese New Year) is celebrated on Friday 16 February. This day is the new moon day of the first Chinese lunar month in the Chinese calendar system. This celebration is dictated by the lunar cycle, which can fall anytime between January 21 and February 20. According to the Asian astrology, your year of birth - and the animal this represents - determines a lot about your personality traits. Although each of the 12 animals gets an outing every dozen years, there are different varieties - and 2018 is the first year of the earth dog since 1958. Anyone born in an earth dog year will be communicative, serious, and responsible in the workplace. Join the Shine BAME Staff Network for some performances, lunch, and networking. The event is open to all staff. Places are limited, so please register.
