News Hyper Japan 2011 in Olympia, July
The Hyper Japan 2011 festival will be held at a new venue, Olympia Two at Kensington, on Friday 22 to Sunday 24 July. No further details have been confirmed, and tickets aren't available yet, but last year's festival included several anime screenings and events.
Olympia Two is one of the three 'Olympia' exhibition halls, next to Kensington (Olympia) station.
The previous Hyper Japan event, in October 2010, took place at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane. It included an appearance by the Japanese voice-actresses from Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, screenings of Durarara!! and Cowboy Bebop, cosplay competitions, and other events relating to Japanese culture.
