Hyper Japan Winter 2018

£17.00 – £50.00

Hyper Japan is back for a winter session to cure all your Japanese cravings. The event runs for three days offering a taste of Japanese culture, from the traditional to the animated.

What to see

There will be performances from groups like NECRONOMIDOL, Miyura Ayme, Choco and the mysterious IJEN KAI, making their European debut. Top Fashion brands will be holding catwalk shows with their best designs and there will be plenty of opportunities for shopping. If you’re looking to try something new there will be a whole host of showcases and workshops from language lessons to calligraphy to choose from. When you’re feeling peckish you can try some authentic Japanese cuisine in the Eat Japan area as well as trying some traditional sake. Of course, Cosplay is a major element of the event with participants and exhibitors showing off their best gear. There are cosplay contests and parades for pros and amateurs alike—just remember to stick to the usual rules if you plan on dressing up.

Tickets

If bought in advance tickets are slightly cheaper as door-prices have a £2.00 surcharge. But since they add a service fee of £1.33£1.99 per ticket for online booking, it ends up being almost no different. Tickets are not guaranteed to be available on the day, and will be sold on a first-come first-served basis. If they do sell out, there are vague mentions of extra on-the-door tickets going live at the event from 12 pm, but we wouldn’t count on that.

You can purchase single day tickets for Friday (£17.00) and Sunday (£22.00). But Saturday is divided into two sessions with tickets for each (£19.00 and £21.00) or both (£30.00). The hall clears out between 2:45 pm and 3:30 pm—so there’s no obvious way to pay for one session and stay for both. If you’re really looking to see everything, a 3-day ticket costs (£50.00).

The dual-session Saturday tickets and the 3-day tickets are only available online. Children under the age of 10 enter free on Friday and those under 5 years old are free all weekend but require a ticket for entry. Children aged 6-10 can enter for £5.00. Priority entry tickets cost an additional £5.00and give priority for registration but not faster access to the event activities.
