Japanophiles, rejoice. A festival celebrating all things Japanese is coming to Trafalgar Square this weekend — and best of all, it's free.
The annual Japan Matsuri Festival — a celebration of local Japanese traditions — brings food, music and performances to Trafalgar Square.
The action centres around two stages, where performances range from a dance routine from traditional deer dancers to taiko drumming. Martial arts demonstrations take place on the smaller stage, and those who want to get involved can take part in a musical exercise routine or a Nodojiman karaoke contest.
Elsewhere, Japanese food and drink will be available to buy, and the activity tent offers visitors of all ages the chance to have a go at calligraphy and origami.
Japan Matsuri Festival takes place in Trafalgar Square on 25 September, 10am-8pm. Entry is free.
