Doki Doki - The Manchester Japanese Festival

TBA November 2021
at Sugden Sports Centre,
Manchester

Doki Doki - The Manchester Japanese Festival is an event held in Manchester, UK, celebrating both traditional and modern Japanese culture.

On advice from both the venue and the insurance company we are postponing this years Doki Doki festival until next year. We still don't know what the government allows for gatherings later in the year anyway so we are playing it safe along with the professional advice we have received. We are looking at returning on Saturday and Sunday 13th and 14th of November 2021. This is still to be confirmed with the venue but will be set by December as usual for the following years festival. Anyone who has bought a ticket so far, it will be valid for next years event. If you wish a refund go to our eventbrite page and submit for the refund there.

The next festival will take place from 11:00 until 17:30 on Saturday tba to Sunday tba November 2021 at Sugden Sports Centre.

Doki Doki - The Manchester Japanese Festival 2021 is proud to be an Official Event of the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-2021.
