Rat's entertainment

4th January 2008 at 00:00
Pupils can observe dancing lions, shadow puppets and Chinese tea ceremonies as part of this year's Chinese new year celebrations. To welcome in the Year of the Rat, the Victoria and Albert museum in London will hold free performances of traditional Chinese dance, as well as demonstrations of calligraphy, tea ceremonies and games. Children will also be invited to make their own dragon headdresses and to dress up in Chinese costume. The events will be held on February 9 and 10.
