Learn about the origins of our Chinese community, and how people live, work and enjoy leisure time nowadays, making Manchester the third largest Chinese population in the country. 2012 is the Year of the Dragon – hear about the traditions, cuisine and religion which make up Chinese culture, and almost unbelievable facts about the country’s phenomenal growth. We visit a supermarket, bakery and gift shop so there is opportunity to purchase genuine Chinese wares.
