CHINESE New Year is being celebrated this week at the bistro in Darlington's Art Centre.

Running alongside the regular menu, the bistro will be cooking dishes including chicken and sweetcorn soup, sweet and sour chicken and crispy duck in plum sauce.

The Chinese meal offer is available from 11.30am to 2pm daily, until Saturday.

The Chinese menu is only one of the many events planned for the year as the Arts Centre aims to bring visitors a variety of themed menus including Indian, Irish and Easter.

Last week saw the bistro serve up English breakfasts as part of National Farmhouse Breakfast Week
