Beijing Chaoyang Spring Carnival 2016

EI has been cooperating with Chinese partner BCIA for the past 10 years on the international programme for the Beijing Chaoyang Spring Carnival. Taking place over a week in Beijing’s largest park, this event breaks the mold of traditional Spring Carnival (Chinese New Year) celebrations by focusing on contemporary arts and entertainment. Depending on the weather, up to 70,000 people per day attend the festival.

This year’s international programme (8th – 13th February 2016) presented by EI included Stockton-On-Tees veterans Wildcats of Kilkenny making a return appearance in Beijing and stilt performers from Shalton Theatre of Amsterdam.
