~Next year (2018) marks ten years since the Beijing Olympic Games. Although the games is primarily recognised for it’s sportsmanship, it was the opening ceremony that captured the essence of the games in all it’s wild imagination and wonder.

2018 is also the tenth anniversary of the UCLAN Confucius Institute. It was launched in 2008 as a unified partnership with UCLAN, Beijing International Studies University, and Hanban.

Over it’s ten year reign it’s enriched local activities with it’s cultural slant on arts related projects within the Preston community. It’s also been able to stage projects imported from abroad such as the Chinese New Year with performances shown at the Charter Theatre.

This recognised venue will be staging the 2018 Chinese New Year on Tuesday 20th February. Next year the performance will be Nanjing Little Red Flower Art Troupe.

This was the first children’s art troupe founded in China in the 1950’s.
It’s made up of over  200 students aged from 6 -12 who have performed at media related events in their home country, China.

As well as creating  a wide following at home they are also praised in other  countries such as Asia, Europe and America. Local people have responded in awe with comments ranging from, “the best children’s art troupe in the world”, and “remarkably talented little artists”.
