Celebrate the Chinese New Year for the final time this February!

Robin Hill is celebrating the Chinese New Year with a final, dazzling display of light and colour at this year’s Spirit of the Orient event. The park will be transformed from the 11th – 18th February, inviting guests to stroll through the illuminated ancient woodland and experience an impressive display of lighting exhibits and Chinese lanterns.

Buried deep beneath shoots of bamboo, Robin Hill’s resident panda duo, Blossom and Ping, will star in their brand-new show, Panda-monium. The fan-favourite pair will need your help solving the mystery of the stolen ‘Heart of a Panda’ diamond. This cheeky show is guaranteed to have the whole family rolling around with laughter.

Did you know 2023 will be the celebration of the Water Rabbit? 2023 is predicted to be the year of hope, with the rabbit symbolising longevity, peace and prosperity!



The celebration will also include a dazzling Chinese Lion performance, featuring a powerful dance choreographed to a unique soundscape. In China, lions are said to symbolise strength, stability and superiority.

The spectacle will conclude with a 12-foot dragon procession creating an electric atmosphere throughout the park.

Head down to the park’s Woodland Ponds, where you can soak in the sights and smells of a delicious selection of Chinese-inspired cuisine guaranteed to get your tastebuds tingling. Absorb the beauty of the park’s grand marble arch before getting cost by the open fires with a giant marshmallow for toasting in hand. Make sure to tie your hopes and dreams onto the branches of the Wishing Tree to welcome good fortune for the new year.


Events Manager, Verity McCormick, said;

‘The team here at Robin Hill have immensely enjoyed working on such an incredible event over the past 11 years, and we’re so excited to be illuminating the park once more for our final Spirit of the Orient celebration. This year is set to go out with a bang, featuring two amazing performances, stunning light displays and delightful flavours of the Chinese delicacy…it is definitely not one to miss!’
