Chinese new year in town

LOOK out for pictures in next week’s Advertiser of the colourful celebrations to mark Chinese New Year in Ilkeston.

The Year of the Dragon will be seen in at Erewash Museum on Saturday when children will march with lanterns made at workshops earlier the day, at 5.30pm.

Call in on the day and there will be a charge of £1 for lantern making.

There will be a celebration of dancing and entertainment in the Market Place following the procession, featuring students from Ilkeston Academy performing a traditional dragon dance.
