AET and the Community

Asian Events Trust is proud to be the organising body of the Chinese New Year Festival but it’s only possible with the gracious support of the Chinese community and many wonderful volunteers.  We also acknowledge our sponsors and supporters, with whom we celebrate the growth of the Festival, and share the wealth of Chinese traditions to the wider community and encouraging all to share.
