    Nearly a thousand Chinese students and academicians from around the UK have gathered in Cambridge for a gala of drama, dance, and song to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year of the Tiger.

    It's the first time such a big event had been held in the ancient city to celebrate the Chinese lunar New Year.

    Delivering a video message, Chen Xiaodong, Minister of the Chinese Embassy in the UK, said 2010 kicks off a new decade of the 21st Century, and that he expected Sino-British relations to grow stronger in the coming years.

    Cambridge Mayor Russ McPherson, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research at Cambridge University Ian Leslie were among those present at the event.
