QUAD to hold JAPAN FEST a celebration of Japanese culture in July

QUAD in Derby will hold a celebration of Japanese culture in June. Japan Fest is a brand-new event organised by Otaku World in association with QUAD. Besides performances, film, and anime, activities will include workshops, Japanese arts and crafts plus authentic handmade food and Japanese inspired drinks.

Japan Fest is open to all ages, adults, children and especially for families on a day designed to gain a deeper understanding of Japanese culture.

Otaku World’s Manuele Giacone said “This event is being meticulously crafted by passionate and motivated individuals to bring a small taste of Japan to Derby. We hope that this event will be of interest to Derby’s Japanese community but also that to anyone that wants to come and enjoy a day immersed in Japanese culture.”

“Otaku World is a passionate team bringing all anime and Japanese enthusiasts together under one roof. After the opening of our anime store in Derby, the introduction of our anime event, Otaku Link, we are now taking another step in our adventure by incorporating the vast array of other aspects of Japanese culture into one event, Japan Fest.”

Japan Fest takes place in QUAD on Saturday 16th July from 11:00am to 5:00pm.

Tickets are £15, £10 for under 18s and £35 for a family ticket (2 adults, 2 children). For more information or to book tickets, please call QUAD Box office on 01332 290606
