Thank you so much for all your help and support.
Every person who worked for, attended, took part or got involved played a HUGE part in making Japanese Culture Festival 2016 such a success.
Over 600 people came along and cosplayed, took part in karaoke and competitions, got to enjoy bubble tea, Japanese noodles, hot-pot, curry, cakes and sushi, went to the maid café, played traditional Japanese festival games, created manga drawings, learned how to make sushi and origami, practiced Japanese, learned about Japan and Japanese art, took part in the calligraphy workshop, tried on kimonos or dressed up in J-fashion, took part in dancing and singing J-pop, entering quizzes and competitions or gaming tournaments and watched anime and Japanese films.
Together we raised over £1000 for charity.
So many people enjoyed Japanese Culture Festival 2016 and have asked if we would like to make this an annual event. We also received lots of feedback, both positive and negative. Taking this on board, we are already working together to make Japanese Culture Festival 2017 even bigger, better, more organised and ultimately more fun for everyone to enjoy!
We want to get as many people involved as possible and are going to need a huge team of people this time to make it all happen. We plan to begin meeting in March 2016 to start organising and making bookings and contacts for the next year.
Please get in contact by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being a part of next year’s festival, I would love to hear from you!
Thank you for all your support and for sharing love for all things Japanese and ambitions to help make the world a better place for everyone.
We all did something truly amazing and I am so proud of everyone.
