About event organiser-- Xinhua Chinese Association

Xinhua Chinese Association (XCA) was established in Manchester in 2004. The Association represents a new generation of Chinese people. Most of the XCA’s members originally came to the UK for academic reasons, later settling down as professionals working in and contributing to many fields including Education, Science and Technology, Medicine and Business.

XCA strives to promote Chinese culture in the UK and provides a platform for Chinese people to have their voices heard and to get involved in many main stream social activities. Over the past years, XCA has organised all sorts of social and cultural activities and events for its members and the general public. The UK Chinese Dragon Boat Festival is one of the most high-profile events organised by XCA.
