Families flocked to King’s Lynn town centre to get creative ahead of the Chinese New Year.

The Vancouver Quarter’s Saturday Clubs returned over the weekend and saw children make spinning dragons, Year of the Dog stained-glass pictures and Chinese dragon puppets ahead of the celebrations on February 16.

“Following the huge success of our Saturday Clubs last year, it was great to see so many families come into the town centre to enjoy this free workshop,” said Abbie Panks, centre manager.

“There will be lots of other free workshops for families to attend every month and we’re also planning a special workshop collaboration this year with True’s Yard Museum and Festival Too.

“We’re very excited that the mini beast bug trail will return for another year as will the mods and rockers spectacular and the hugely popular fairy tales and legends in the summer.”
