Join in the party down at the harbourside this weekend

Woky Ko is once again hosting its day-long Chinese New Year bash, Woky Fest, and its noisy neighbours at Bristol's Wapping Wharf are getting involved, too. They'll be serving up some top Chinese-inspired food and drink, available exclusively for the event. 

Woky Ko: Cargo itself will be serving its popular crispy squid cones and sweet and sour chicken, and if you dine in the restaurant you’ll receive an envelope of good fortune for the chance to win a meal or another delicious (and mysterious) prizes.

And finally, it wouldn’t be Woky Fest without the University of Bristol Chinese Lion Dance Troupe now, would it? Catch their performances at 2pm and 7pm at Wapping Whart. Expect all the drums, cymbals and colourful costumes of a traditional lion dance.
