Aid For Japan is being supported by DOKI DOKI – the annual Japanese Festival held in Manchester.
The next event is scheduled to take place on Saturday 7th November 2015 and will celebrate both traditional and modern Japanese culture. Throughout the day, there will be talks, demonstrations, parades and other events showcasing manga, anime, fashion, martial arts, film, music, games and other aspects of Japanese culture, past and present, as well as retail stalls and artist stands. Hot and cold Japanese food will also be available to festival-goers.
Doki Doki has chosen Aid For Japan as their supported charity. Aid For Japan’s founder Akemi Solloway will also be giving a talk about the charity and its aims at the event.
The festival comprises a daytime event, running from 10am (9.30am for Early-Bird ticket holders) to 7pm, followed by an evening cosplay party event, from 9pm to 2am. There is no age limit for the daytime event, but anyone under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a paying parent or guardian (the child will get in for free). The evening event is 18+ only.
Doki Doki takes place at Sugden Sports Centre, situated near the student quarter and near Oxford Road train station. The evening event is at The Zoo nightclub, over the road from Sugden Sports Centre.
Tickets are £10 in advance, £15 on the day
