WHO IS LCCA?

Who is the London Chinatown Chinese Association?

 

  • 1978

    Our Humble Beginnings

    LCCA was founded in 1978, with the aim of developing and expanding businesses in Chinatown and representing British Chinese to engage effectively with the British government . LCCA was also devoted to working closely with the London Chinese Community Centre in providing a wide range of essential services for the many Chinese “living in the United Kingdom and with a heart connecting to China”. More importantly, LCCA served as an outlet for Chinese businesses to voice their concerns and together bringing better conditions and prosperity to the whole of Chinatown.

  • 1987

    Charitable Activities

    From aiding the local Chinese community in London at their moments of need, LCCA spared no efforts in responding to disaster relief activities in China. Over the years, LCCA has raised funds for many China's disaster struck areas, including the Daxinganling fire in 1987, the East China floods in 1991 and the widespread flooding in the Yangtze River in 1998 etc etc.. LCCA has also donated considerable amount of money to the construction of new schools and hospitals in mainland China benefitting many in these worthwhile projects

  • 1997

    Hong Kong Returns

    The LCCA maintains a close relationship and bond with the Hong Kong's New Territories Community. One notable participation by LCCA was the “Preserve The Villages And Clans Action” organised by New Territories Heung Yee Kuk.

  • Today

    Chinese Festivals

    LCCA proudly remains committed to its aim in serving the Chinese business community in London. Today it is also the official organisor of the annual Mid-Autumn Festival and Chinese New Year Celebrations held in Chinatown. Over the years these events have not only attracted people throughout Britain but from Europe and around the world. In particular the Chinese New Year Festival is now the biggest Chinese New Year celebrations held outside of Asia, it has become an integral part of the London event calendar and is the biggest outdoor event in London attended by hundreds of thousands people each year.

  • Onwards

    Improve on improvements

    London Chinatown has been transformed into a cleaner, safer and more enjoyable place for its visitors and the local community over the last four decades.

丁酉雞年
YEAR OF THE ROOSTER

The Chinese New Year celebratsions in London is one of the key event organised by the LCCA

The Story

Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar. In China, it is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the "Lunar New Year".

The source of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Traditionally, the festival was a time to honor deities as well as ancestors. Chinese New Year is celebrated in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations, including Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Philippines, and also in Chinatowns elsewhere. Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese and has had influence on the lunar new year celebrations of its geographic neighbours.

The Tradition



Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the Chinese new year vary widely. Often, the evening preceding Chinese New Year's Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red color paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of "good fortune" or "happiness", "wealth", and "longevity." Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes.

The Event

The Chinese New Year celebrations in 2017 was one of the biggest in years.

The main celebrations was held on:
Sunday 29th January 2017!

Filming in Chinatown

DOWNLOAD: Filming Record Form

London Chinatown extends from Gerrard Street to Lisle Street in the South and to the north to include parts of Shaftesbury Avenue.
The London Chinatown Chinese Association works closely with Westminster City Council to support film production in Chinatown.
Our aim is to ensure that these activities continue to be regarded by all as safe, lawful, successful and fair.

Gerrard Street and the majority of the streets and footways within Chinatown are narrow, restricted and busy with pedestrians most of the day.
A planned event therefore will be limited to where it can be safely managed.

Any events taking place within Chinatown will need to prove a benefit to the local community, businesses or residents.

The London Chinatown Chinese Association represents and acts as a liaison with the local community and businesses. Anyone interested in filming in Chinatown should downloand and fill in the Filming Record Form so we can access the impact of the production and consult with the stakeholders likely to be affected.

Please Download the London Chinatown Filming Record Form here: http://www.lccauk.com/forms/FILMINGINCHINATOWNRecordform2017.02.doc

The LCCA welcomes donations from filming companies towards the maintenance and development of Chinatown.

Please also contact Westminster City Council to make the appropiate application for your filming project:
