Press release as follows:

NEXT JAPANESE ART FESTIVAL ANNOUNCED

On the 27th and 28th of February, the Japanese Arts Festival will return to the Richmond Adult Community college, Richmond.

At the last festival in July 2009, over 2,000 visitors enjoyed a busy programme of shows and demonstrations. All kinds of cultural activities will be represented, from koto and kimono, to shamisen and origami.

You can even join in with one of the many workshops, including Japanese cooking, manga drawing classes, film screenings and even Taiko drumming!

Younger visitors will have plenty to keep them occupied, with activities throughout the weekend including an exhibition of manga art and Para Para dance demonstrations. Dozens of manga artists and anime dealers will be exhibiting at the festival too. Why not have your portrait drawn by one of the many talented artists?

This year's festival will feature a range of cosplay activities on both days, including cosplay competititions, costume making workshops, and photo sessions!

Guest speakers at the festival include Japanese comics experts Paul Gravett, and artist Sonia Leong, author of Manga Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Worn out from so much culture, you can relax in the open cafe area, which will be serving a range of Japanese refreshments, from festival food such as takoyaki and okonomiyaki, to old favourites like sake and soba.

The venue is easily accessible by bus, tube and British Rail. Entry to the festival and most of the activities are free, although there will be a charge for some of the workshops (see website for details).

The Japanese Arts festival would like to thank Tecmo-Koei (publishers of the Samurai Warriors series of games), Third Window, MVM Films and Optimum Releasing for their continued support and sponsorship.
