2020 is the Year of the Rat – the first of all zodiac animals. Come and join an evening full of fun and cultural festivities as we celebrate this very special year.

The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party.
