The reason why it falls later than what we know as 'New Year' is because it follows the Lunar Calendar - the beginning of a new moon. Because of this, the Chinese New Year is on different dates every year.
In celebration of Chinese New Year, The Chinese State Circus are holding a competition to win this hamper of goodies for the winner to perfect their Chinese cuisine! Complete with Chinese Tea brought over from China from the artistes themselves.
Head over to their Facebook to find out how you can win!
