East-West Festive Cultures

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded a grant to the Ming-Ai (London) Institute for the East West Festive Cultures project between May 2009 - April 2011, which is "How do traditional Chinese festivals differ from their British counterparts and why?"  This project will find out through studying the similarities and differences between festivals by comparing, for example, Hallowe'en with Ghost Month, and St Valentine's Day with the Lantern Festival.
