With Chinese New Year coming round the corner on Sunday 22 January 2023, UCLIC celebrated by visiting Stew Master 铁锅炖 restaurant on Bloomsbury Way. The stew pot 铁锅炖 is a speciality of Northeast China, including regions such as Shandong province. Each of the three tables were treated to one steaming stew pot - beef, goose, and fish - that was cooked directly on the heating elements in the table and shared as a group.

The event brought together students and staff from both Gower Street and Euston Road, and gave us the chance to welcome some new members to UCLIC as well. We hope to make this an annual event to celebrate the diversity of cultures and festivals of members within UCLIC, and wish everyone happiness and good fortune for the new year! 新年快乐,万事顺意!
