This Lunar New Year, we invite you to leap like a rabbit and prowl like a cat with renewed vigour and love for our fragile world.

Green Lunar New Year at Museum of the Home will take a spin on traditional East and Southeast Asian celebrations, focusing on issues around sustainability and climate change.

We'll be ringing in the Chinese Year of the Rabbit and Vietnamese Year of the Cat with a day of fun, creativity and reflection, seeking more sustainable ways to live in response to the climate emergency.

Museum of the Home welcomes everyone at different points of their journey with sustainability and climate change. Come together to set sustainable intentions for the year ahead in a safe and welcoming space.

Celebrations will be on throughout the day across Museum of the Home, 136 Kingsland Road, London E2 8EA
