  • Online bookings are closed for this event.

In July 2012, we celebrated the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics at "Olympic 51 Night"; in July 2013, we marked the four hundredth anniversary of diplomatic, trading and cultural relations between Britain and Japan at "400 Night".

This year, along with over 200 guests from the UK-Japan community, you are invited to mark Shakespeare's 450th birthday at "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

This final event before the "summer holidays" will celebrate the spirit of creativity, culture and story-telling that has inspired successful collaborations and a mutual respect between two societies on opposite sides of the world.

The lively evening is organised in association with our friends and colleagues:

- Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Industry (TCCI)
- Japan British Society (JBS)
- Visit Britain 
- RSA JFN ( Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce / Japan Fellows' Network)
