Crowing About the Year of The Rooster with the Coca-Cola London Eye

London’s Chinese New Year 2017 is the biggest Chinese New Year celebration in Europe (and outside Asia); it attracts over 700,000 people, and will take place on Saturday, 28th January. On this occasion, the Coca-Cola London Eye will be hosting a weekend of surprise and delight moments, including Dragon dancers, Chinese fortune cookies, appearances from family favourite Kung Fu Panda and a special red and gold light show. This celebration coincides with the re-opening of the London Eye, after its temporary closure for annual maintenance and engineering works.

Sunny Jouhal, Coca-Cola London Eye General Manager, said: “As one of London’s most iconic landmarks, we wanted to shine a light on this great city-wide celebration. We’re delighted to be celebrating Chinese New Year once again at the Coca-Cola London Eye. We close for maintenance around this time every year but this year’s reopening will celebrate the Chinese New Year of 2017 and the London Eye’s 17th year. We will be surprising guests with Chinese New Year activities and events throughout the January weekend (27th-29th Jan) as well as the special light show happening daily. The year of the Rooster is certainly something to crow about!”
