Lingnan’s students and staff celebrated the Lantern Festival and the Chinese New Year on campus on 13 February at the carnival “Lantern Legend 2017”.

After the kick-off ceremony, Lingnan staff and students from different countries staged a variety of fantastic cultural performances including Chinese lion dance, Indian dance, band show, singing performance, Chinese Hulusi and Guzhen recitals to showcase the cultural diversity of the campus. A total of 16 booths were set up by students and non-profit organisations at Wing On Plaza featuring gourmet, games and handicrafts. All Lingnanians had a joyful evening under the festive atmosphere.
