Just seven days to go!
Is it still going ahead?
Yes, the organisers, artists and volunteers have put their heart and soul into making it a fun and memorable event for everyone.
But, is it safe to attend especially with the Novel Corona virus outbreak in China?
After consulting local authorities and following advice from Public Health England, we know that it is still a very low risk to people in the UK and Lancaster.
In addition, we have been proactive to keep it as safe as possible. We advise anyone who has symptoms of cold or flu to take it easy, rest at home and recover. It's the same advice whether it is the Corona virus or the common flu - be considerate to other peoples health and look after yourself too.

Has anything changed about the event?
In times of need, we all need to do our bit where we can. It has always been at the heart of what we do - whether it is for a friend, our local community or a good cause - we can always do something to help. We want to stay positive and pragmatic.
On the day of the Carnival, we will be fundraising for the Hubei Charity Federation, an organisation working to distribute much needed medical equipment to frontline medical staff which they urgently need. They have been supported by a number of internationally recognised charities and organisations such as Save the Children.
Anything else changed?
The event will now open its doors from 12noon till 4pm.
It will still be packed with incredible performances from the colourful lion and Qilin (Chinese Unicorn) dances, dragon parade, support by Lancaster's own Samba Espirito, music and dance throughout the day, food and gift stalls and fun activities for the family to enjoy.
What if the weather isn't great?
After experiencing everything from rain and snow throughout the years, the venue has indoor and outdoor performances. Come rain or shine - it will not ruin the day!
Where can I park my car?
There is a large carpark nearby on Dallas Road, LA1 1TW just down the road.
But, hold on… consider using public transport! The venue is just a short walk from Lancaster's train station and one of its main bus stops on Common Garden Street outside Primark.
Will Dallas Road be closed off for vehicles?
No, we want people living and working around there to enjoy life as usual. The roads will be kept open and additionally, we kindly ask visitors to respect local residents privacy and space.
But, I have one more question…?!
