Chinese New Year 2017

28th Jan - 28th Feb

Celebrate Chinese New Year with The Mall

We may have just welcomed the start of 2017 but there’s another New Year on the way – Chinese New Year!

The first day of the Chinese New Year is on Saturday 28th January 2017 and The Mall is inviting customers to embrace oriental food and culture in Maidstone.

Out of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese Zodiac, 2017 is the year of the Rooster. Famous Roosters include Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett and Justin Timberlake. But you don’t have to be a Rooster to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

Treat yourself to authentic Chinese flavours at the Chopstix Noodle Bar at The Mall, where you can choose from classic Sweet and Sour Chicken, Thai Chicken Curry, Black Bean Chicken and Vegetable Curry and more combined with Vegetable Noodles or Egg Fried Rice plus a selection of delicious sides. Eat with classic chopstix for that authentic dining experience.

Or if you fancy bringing the Chinese experience home, pick up a gorgeous 21-piece Chinese Dining Set from Wilko for £20. The set contains everything you need for that authentic Oriental experience including black wooden chopsticks, chopstick rests, a serving bowl, four rice bowls and four sauce dip bowls.

Meanwhile, if you buy three Uncle Ben’s products from Iceland, you can take home a free Uncle Bens Wok! Mix and match from a selection of sauces and rice to compliment your Chinese meal at home.

Learn more about Chinese culture with a range of books from The Works. You’ll find everything from recipes to learning how to speak Mandarin and even a book dedicated to Chinese Art. The Chinese Art Book is only £12.

Bring the scents of the orient into your home with a selection of diffusers from Clintons. Their Yankee Candle Reed Diffuser in Midnight Jasmine has a seductively lush perfume of water jasmine, sweet honeysuckle, neroli and mandarin blossom – all for £19.99.

For a cheeky take on oriental fashion, this simple grey t-shirt from New Look is a cute way to support Chinese New Year. Featuring a lucky cat slogan, it’s only £4!
