This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series 40th Anniversary Celebration

On Saturday 16th September the whole Club came together at the Watford Colosseum for the Club’s 40th Anniversary Celebration. There was much to see – how far we have come since the Club was founded in 1977.

Proceedings were opened with a Big Head Buddha Lion Dance.

Each Instructor put on a demonstration of our traditional patterns both alone and with their students.

The demonstrations were followed by a spectacular Traditional Chinese Lion Dance featuring both long and short weapons.

The Golden Lion finished by presenting Chief Instructor Dennis Ngo with a congratulatory scroll.

Photos of the evening were taken by Ben Hallifax who has uploaded many more images to Flickr – the link will be sent out by email to all subscribed to our newsletter so you can spot yourselves and your fellow students.

And watch this space for more images to come of the Club demonstrations and the Lion Dance.
