Through our public events programme we bring elements of ancient and modern China to our audiences.
Most of our events are free and everyone is welcome. As well as special, one-off events such as art exhibitions and touring performances, our regular annual programme includes:
A vital part of our calendar and a great way to bring people together. We celebrate Chinese New Year in February, the Dragon Boat Festival in May, the Mid-Autumn Festival in September and invite all our friends and students to participate.
Free, informal, informative lectures aimed at a non-academic audience. We invite leading thinkers and practitioners with an interest in China to speak for an hour on the topic of their choice.
We are most proud of our longstanding partnership with Manchester Literature Festival (MLF), with whom we work to bring a different Chinese author to appear at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation (IABF) every year.
