Lion dance to mark New Year

Have your say

Chinese New Year celebrations will take place in Tickhill on Sunday with a lion dance to mark the Year of the Snake.

Events will take place outside Jamp’s wine bar in St Mary’s Court, following last year’s celebrations for the Year of the Dragon.

A yellow lion costume will be worn by dancers from the Ma Bo team as they undertake an acrobatic journey from the Buttercross to the courtyard, accompanied by a big drum and the clashing of cymbals.

The special event from 8.30pm has been organised by James and Ann Wan, Maxine Taylor and Paul Wan, joint owners of the former Red Lion.
