Come and support Japan in our biggest show to date! Live music, comedy and rare items up for auction. Every penny from the show will go to the Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund Charity (http://www.japansociety.org.uk/earthquake/) to help rebuild Japan after the events of 11 March.
We have an exciting line-up of new and established acts with a Japanese edge. Most of our bands performing originate from Japan, including iMMa, No Cars and Kuaigora. We also have a set from Akira The Don and DJ sets from Japan Underground and the fabulous Mr Iain Lee of Absolute Radio and the 11 O'Clock Show.
In addition to the live performance we will also be running a Karoake Club thanks to Onboard Karaoke, please Cosplay Portrait have a booth and there will be a raffle with several high value prize packs on offer. Our aim is to fill the venue (650 capacity) and raise over £7,000 for the appeal on the night.
