Preview: 1-2-3 Japan Tsunami Fundraiser

There's a mix of art, food, music and film to raise money for the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund, down at the Russian Club next Saturday.

For just £3 you get access to an exhibition of unique, illustrated cotton bags (on sale, of course), created by 20 Japanese and UK artists, screenings of the original and uncut Godzilla and Toshio Matsumoto's The Funeral Parade of Roses, and DJ sets from Jerry Bouthier, Sigmund Kraftwerk, David Andersson and Younger Than Me.

A 'VIP' ticket for £35, on the hand, gets you all the above but also drinks and a tasting menu from Marylebone restaurant Dinings. Some of the dishes on offer sound amazing: char-grilled Iberian pork with Korean spicy miso, soft shell crab sushi roll, seabass carpaccio with truffle salsa and ponzu jelly... These tickets are limited so don't hang about if you want one.

Ichi-Ni-San (1-2-3), A Day for Japan, is on 20th August at The Russian Club, 340-344 Kingsland Road. Doors open at 1.30pm, tasting menu is available 6.30-8pm, tickets £3 / £35.
