The Hyper Japan J-Culture festival has announced that its next London event will take place in February next year, from Friday 24 to Sunday 26. Like this July's event , it will be at Earl's Court, but a different venue - Brompton Hall in the Earl's Court Exhibition Centre, which has 5,300 square metres of space.
(The last Hyper Japan event took place in Olympia Two, but the organisers apologised for problems with queuing.)
The February festival will open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m on Friday; 9.30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday; and 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. (All times are subject to change). It will include the Hyper Japan Cosplay Awards, which will be a preliminary to the World Cosplay Summit and Japan Expo European Cosplay Gathering. Hyper Japan will also have events and stalls related to anime, manga, games and other Japanese pop-culture, and to Japanese food, fashion, technology and traditions.
