The annual Chinese New Year celebrations in Bury St Edmunds took place at Zen Noodle Bar In Angel Lane.

The traditional lion dance, performed by the Golden Dragon Martial Arts Club from Newton, near Sudbury, used to take place outside the now closed Canton restaurant in Hatter Street. Patrick Chung, who organises the celebrations, said: “It’s good to keep the tradition going.”
