The Dragon Festival Project

Working with Lancashire County Councils Library and Information Services we worked with eight primary schools across Lancashire to workshops to make the Dragon’s ‘body’. As well as making the dragon, the children were also taught how to make the music and learn the moves for the dragon dance. The children also learned about the history of this Chinese tradition. Alongside this project, these children are invited to design their own dragon by model or picture, as part of a competition.

The winner from each school will will have the honour of carrying the ‘Pearl’ for the dragon dance in their area.
