Behind the Banner

It's Chinese New Year from 12th February. Born in Chinatown, this is always a big event for us, and one of our Founders, Neil R. Hall had a key role in expanding the Chinese New Year celebrations twenty years ago to be among the biggest outside of China. But this year, of course, it will be different.

Find out about Year of the Metal Ox on our Chinese New Year page.


You can read the story of LCTKD, including how we got our name, in a page giving you the background to LCTKD.

Our Logo

Our home page is the only page not to contain our distinctive red and green LCTKD logo, which is usually at the top of the page.

The logo itself was designed by Susanna Fung Tsui Shan, and it was based upon the logo of our home at the London Chinese Community Centre. The green characters mean "Chinese" and the red flash symbolises good fortune.
