The Frost Fair is the free-entry biannual winter festival produced by the Whitworth as a weekend-long celebration of winter, art and togetherness.

The theme for this year's event is 'Japan', and the occasion will coincide with the "Japan-UK Season of Culture".

The key elements to the weekend’s events will include dance and music performances, interactive traditional and modern Japanese craft workshops, cinema screenings, gaming/cosplay, craft market stalls, food and drink including ‘Washoku’ and the art exhibition “Katagami”, a collection of Japanese katagami stencils, samples of katazome textiles and woodcut prints depicting kimonos stencilled in this way.
