University of Hertfordshire marks Chinese New Year
AROUND 300 students and 50 staff from the University of Hertfordshire came together for a traditional party celebrating Chinese New Year.
The event was held at the Hatfield-based uni’s de Havilland Campus, where celebrations marking the start of the Year of the Rabbit got under way.
Kicking off on February 3, the Year of the Rabbit is believed to be one of the most peaceful years of the 12 Chinese Zodiacs.
Split into three parts, the party began with a traditional Chinese market, followed by a buffet dinner.
In the evening, guests enjoyed performances from singers, dancers, bands and traditional Chinese musicians.
