BURSCOUGH Wharf is inviting people to join their Chinese New Year Celebrations next month as they welcome the Liverpool Hung Gar Kung Fu School for an afternoon of oriental entertainment.
The courtyard will be adorned with Chinese decorations where members of the school will perform traditional dance and martial arts displays featuring a 70ft dragon.
Meanwhile, free rickshaw rides around the village will be available for all to enjoy, whilst the Wharf’s eateries will serve a selection of traditional Chinese food including soup, noodles and various snacks.
Courtyard stalls will also be selling various Chinese gifts and memorabilia.
Site manager Ray Eckersley said: “As we approach our third anniversary and welcome the new deli, what better way to celebrate, we’re all very much looking forward to what’s going to be a colourful and entertaining afternoon.’’
The Wharf has grown considerably in the past three years and last weekend the doors of a new delicatessen opened.
‘The Deli’ is TRU Season’s latest venture in the Wharf, offering a range of local produce for people to sample.
Following on from the successful opening of the Lancashire Bread House, the Deli and Bread House will operate out of adjoining units at the Wharf.
Along with fresh breads, pastries and hand-filled pies baked daily on the premises, customers will be able to buy a range of fresh meats, locally-sourced produce, jams, marmalades and award winning crisps and chocolates.
In February, the Bread House will feature a ‘Connoisseur Range’ of Hot Cross Buns, complimenting the decadent chocolates on offer.
The Chinese New Year event is free and runs from 12pm – 3pm on February 9.
