Chinese New Year Celebrations in Chelmsford 

CCCS & Essex Cultural Diversity Project have recently forged a new partnership, hosting the Guzheng Masters and their students from China for the Chinese New Year Celebrations in Chelmsford, Essex this January.

Filled with inspiring dance, art and culture, this vibrant celebration marked the start of the Year of the Rat, and was one of the opening activities for Essex 2020: Year of Science and Creativity. The Guzheng, also known as a Chinese zither, is a Chinese plucked string instrument with a more than 2,500-year history.

A delegation of 25 people from Yuexiu District, Guangzhou visited the UK for nine days. They were hosted by Essex Cultural Diversity Project and Colchester Chinese Culture Society, and performed at the Civic Theatre in Chelmsford, alongside locally based talent. The event was also supported by Chelmsford City Council.
