Japan festival

Japan Festival started life as an annual celebration of the rich and varied culture of Japan.


Our first festival was in Lincoln and we’re now thrilled to have brought this extravaganza to Kent. 2020 has meant a delay and a rethink about how to stage the event but has made us more determined than ever to share this festival of wonder. 


The festival programme is jam packed with workshops and events to engage, inspire and enthrall. It gives everyone attending the opportunity to experience this amazing culture first-hand. The driving force behind the Japan Festival is simple: to encourage cultural acceptance, connect new audiences and make arts and culture events inclusive and accessible to all.
