Join the celebrations to herald the dawning of the Year of the Snake - with music, food and fireworks and a traditional costumed Dragon Dance at 9pm!
The Chinese New Year has been celebrated in this way for many centuries, but this is the first time it's happened at the Environment Centre.
Seeing out the old Year of the Dragon, this free event will welcome in the good fortune, happiness, wealth and longevity symbolised by the Snake, the 6th sign of the Chinese Zodiac, and also known as the "Junior Dragon".
This will be the first event in the Environment Centre's "Celebrating Diversity" programme for 2013.
Although the event is free, we'd welcome charitable donations.
You won't need a ticket, but we would like you to let us know if you will be coming, so we can manage numbers. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 020 8549 2698.
For queries, contact Jean Vidler as above or Tariq Shabbeer on email@example.com or 07725 499176.
And, in line with tradition, it would be great if you could wear something red, to represent the fire that wards off evil spirits.
Kung hei fat choi!
