HAPPY NEW YEAR AGAIN… AND AGAIN??!!!
This Friday we’ll be shouting Happy New Year for the second and third time around!
Not only is it the Lunar New Year this Friday 31st January, but it’s also Chinese New Year.
A colourful festival of red lanterns and dragons, it’s traditionally a time for honouring family, ancestors and deities, and to sweep away misfortune and welcome new good luck. And at The Rocket on the same day we’ll be honouring our International Student family at #LondonMet, with a great big welcome party just for them.
