Members of the Chinese community celebrated the New Year in style.
Around 200 people enjoyed the fun and colourful festivities at Yorkshire Children’s Centre in Huddersfield.
The day was packed full of activities and shows to keep families entertained.
It included a spectacular Chinese lion dance, Tai Chi and martial arts demonstrations and children’s music and dancing.
Visitors could also sample Chinese food, take part in arts and crafts and shop at a variety of stalls.
The celebrations - marking the year of the Monkey for China - were organised by the Huddersfield Chinese Community Centre in partnership with the children’s centre.
Rachel Dodson, Yorkshire Children’s Centre’s regional enterprise development manager, said: “It’s been a really nice event and very well attended.
“There was a great atmosphere and people have enjoyed seeing the different performances and trying the food.”
The event, held at Brian Jackson House on New North Parade, didn’t run last year due to the Chinese Community Centre not having sufficient funding.
But, thanks to more involvement from the centre, it made a welcome return this year and Rachel hopes it will once again firmly establish itself as a key event in the town’s cultural calendar.
She said: “It’s good for Huddersfield to have this event running.
“We’ve had a real representation of people from both the Chinese community and all over the town attending and bringing their children.”
