Meadowhall Shopping Centre got in touch with its oriental side as staff and shoppers celebrated Chinese New Year in spectacular style.

The Sheffield-based centre welcomed the Sheffield Lion Dance Team and dancers from the Wanlin Dance School, who both entertained the crowds in the malls.

James Sheun from the Sheffield Lion Dance Team said: “Meadowhall has invited us to showcase our parade and celebrate the Lunar Chinese New year of the Goat. The purpose of the lion dance, besides entertainment, is to bring good luck and prosperity to the watching crowd.”

Meadowhall Centre Director Darren Pearce added: “We are pleased to welcome the Chinese New Year Celebrations as part of our half-term schedule, we pride ourselves on being able to provide a variety of activities during these short breaks suitable for all the family and this one will certainly be one for all the family to enjoy.”
