Join the Botanic Garden in celebrating Chinese New Year

12 February 2018

Welcome in the Year of the Dog at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery with spectacular traditional and contemporary performances, stalls, workshops and activities. Visit the Botanic Garden’s display where guides will be promoting the Chinese Medicinal Herb Garden and talking about the new season’s events at the Botanic Garden.

Stalls throughout the museum will feature elements of Chinese culture. There will be a delicious Chinese inspired menu in the café and beautiful Chinese goods for sale in the shop.

You can also pick up a dog detective trail to search for dogs throughout the museum! The Year of the Dog starts on 16 February and ends on 4 February 2019. According to the Chinese Zodiac, people born in a year of the Dog are honest, loyal, friendly, kind, cautious and prudent. People born in this year have green, red and purple as their lucky colours.
