Celebrating a tasty Chinese New Year at Robin Hill’s Spirit of the Orient…

The Island’s biggest Chinese New Year Celebration is back!

Get set to experience the vibrancy, colour and of course the flavours of China’s famous festival at Robin Hill.

Taking place during this February’s half term gates open from 6-10 pm daily between 14th – 22nd February 2020.

If you have not been to a Spirit of the Orient event before expect a fusion of sound, colour and an abundance of oriental flavours; featuring impressive light exhibits, the interactive 12-metre dragon procession, light shows and traditional lion dances.

Overlooking the projections across the Woodland Ponds, lion performers, with sound effects and pyrotechnics will take to the stage for a spectacular, illuminated dance show. The shows are based on traditional Chinese lion dances, in which performers mimic a big cat’s movements to bring good fortune.

A fully interactive evening out, become part of the 12-metre Chinese Dragon procession as it winds its way around the park’s Woodland Ponds. Legendary in Chinese mythology, dragons traditionally symbolise power, strength and good luck.

Tie your hopes and dreams to the wishing tree; where legend has it that the higher a wish is tied, the more likely it is to come true… little ones will be sure to be on parents shoulders to get that prime spot! Pucker up beneath the bows of the marble arch to bring in the new year, rumour has it that a kiss shared under these majestic beams will bring luck to you and the one you love for another year.

Tickets

There are several great ticket options, including Standard Entry and for the first time, a Multi-Visit Ticket which allows you unlimited visits to the event.

Foodies

Why not vamp up your experience with a Feed Me Bundle (main meal, prawn crackers and a drink) or the Valentine Bundle for you and the one you love (a meal for two, including prawn crackers, giant marshmallows, two small bottles of prosecco and a goodie bag). YUMMY!
