Celebrate the Year of the Dog in London, with the biggest Chinese New Year celebrations outside Asia.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people descend on the West End to enjoy a colourful parade, free stage performances and traditional Chinese food, and to wish each other "Xin Nian Kuai Le" (Happy New Year in Mandarin) or "San Nin Faai Lok" (in Cantonese).
In 2018, the London celebrations are taking place on 18 February, which is the Sunday following the date of the Chinese New Year (16 February).
