Rail passengers and North Wales British Transport Police Officers enjoyed a lion dance performance at Bangor station this morning – to celebrate Chinese new year.

The performance was organised by Transport For Wales and staff from The Garden Hotel in Bangor.

BT Police Wales Tweeted: “A very energetic, entertaining and enjoyable performance – certainly brightened up the day for us and the passengers at the station.

“We’re grateful again to the Garden Hotel in Bangor for their help arranging the performance.”

Police Sergeant Rowlands was also on hand to give a impromptu performance on the drums.

On Saturday, 9 February, The Confucius Institute of Bangor University will be celebrating Chinese New Year in the centre of Bangor.
