I’m going to have to keep this one quick, because my evening has been taken away from me by a baby who won’t stop feeding.

If the cold weather keeps up, a good place to head tomorrow is the Museum of Childhood, Bethnal Green, where they’re celebrating Chinese New Year.

‘Wasn’t that a couple of weeks back?’ I hear you say.

Well, it turns out that celebrations run from Saturday 28th January 2017 through to Saturday 11th February this year – that’s tomorrow. The 11th is Lantern Festival, the 15th day of the New Year. And in case you missed it, this is the year of the rooster.

The Museum of Childhood is promising ‘traditional and modern instrumental and dance performances… …Chinese Opera mask making, costume and calligraphy workshops.’

It’s all happening between 11.30am and 4.30pm. And it’s free.
