11-12 February 2011, Leeds
The Leeds University Union Japanese Society will host a cultural fair themed around the traditional Japanese Tanabata festival on the 11th and 12th February 2011. The story behind this festival is taught in Japanese primary schools and is a light hearted way to inspire and engage people of all ages. With the help of our native Japanese members, we will bring the story of the Tanabata festival to life through music, dance and art. Members of our society will put on a play to tell the story of the two lovers separated by a river of stars which has influenced countless poems, songs and dramas.
