It has appeared twice on the BBC Blue Peter Show, including outdoor events and festivals. In 2012, it appeared live on the X-Factor show as part of the supporting act for renowned singr Alicia Keys.

The Chinese Dragon consists of 9 peformers holding the dragon with another leading the dragon with a 'Pearl'. A group of musicians accompanies the dragon as it dances and weaves along. As the dragon is over 20 metres long, there should be enough area for it to through the crowd or perform its routines.
