- 27/11/2014: Date of the next festival announced
Doki Doki - The Manchester Japanese Festival is an event held in Manchester, UK, celebrating both traditional and modern Japanese culture.
The next festival will take place on Saturday 7 November 2015 at Sugden Sports Centre.
The last festival took place on Saturday 9 November 2013 and was a huge success, with over 2,700 people attending (a big increase from the 1,600 who attended the first festival in 2011) and £600 raised for our supported charity, Aid for Japan, which provides long-term support for orphans of the 2011 Tohoku disaster in Japan. See our forum for photographs and videos of the 2013 festival.
