The programme, which includes Chinese New Year Concerts, dragon and lion dances, two bilingual ceilidhs, tai chi sessions, calligraphy and tarot card reading, runs from Saturday 3 to Friday 16 February 2024.

The Year of the Dragon officially begins on Saturday 10 February. The Dragon is significant in Chinese culture as an auspicious and extraordinary creature, symbolising power, nobleness, honour, luck and success. 2024 is therefore forecasted to bring about opportunities, changes and challenges. Edinburgh’s Chinese New Year Festival, generously supported by Heriot-Watt University and Hainan Airlines and co-ordinated by Edinburgh Tourism Action Group (ETAG) as part of its China Ready initiative, has become the largest celebration of its kind in Scotland since its inception in 2019.
