Ann's Chinese New Year threatened by Henry's bluster

St Ann’s Square’s trees bear unusual winter fruit

In recent years Chinese New Year has moved well beyond Chinatown- the dragon parade on Sunday always loops out of Chinatown and onto Albert Square but the past five years that I’ve been writing this blog have seen red lanterns brighten up the city centre from mid-January onwards. I am all in favour. Surprisingly they have survived the battering that the various named storms have brought. It seemed especially bad overnight here in the city centre with Storm Henry.


  1. They stand out rather well against the architecture.

  2. It looks like a great bit of color and whimsy among muted colors.
