CORONAVIRUS: 05May21 UpdateAll UK venues closed on 16th March 2020. Many are planning to re-open by late May 2021 with some restrictions and possibly fully open from mid-June.


Every thirteen moon the dreaded monster Nian pays a visit to the village. The audience, cast in the role of villagers, must protect themselves- which animal can save them? The story behind the lion dance is brought to you with all the excitement, colour and sounds of the Chinese New Year by Yellow Earth, the UK's award winning British East Asian Theatre Company.

Author Carey English.
