Let’s Celebrate Together!


At the invitation of the Queen’s own Pageant Master, Bruno Peek, and as part of the BBC’s live coverage, The Federation of Chinese Associations and the Chinese Community of Greater Manchester cordially invite you to join our East Meets West celebrations of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s joyous Platinum Jubilee.


Across the land on the evening of 2nd June, thousands of beacons will be lit to congratulate The Queen on this historical occasion and we decided that we needed to be involved.


From 9pm on that evening in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester and with the support of Manchester City Council, we would be delighted to share with you a fabulous illuminated Night Dragon Dance, a myriad of Chinese martial arts demonstrations and the lighting of the Chinese Community Beacon.


We would be delighted if you would accept our invitation to join us at this unique celebration of togetherness, joy and dedication.
