Manga Art exhibition in Richmond (August 15-16)


Article by Delusional posted Friday 15th August 2008

Sadly Amecon is over, I hope everyone enjoyed the convention and look forward to seeing all the new costumes being uploaded. Hopefully by now everyone will have returned home, caught up on their lack of sleep/malnutrition and started hunting online for photos!

A little late notice, but for those of you who are London-based - beat the post-con blues by attending another event this weekend. A manga and anime art exhibition is running this weekend in Richmond, promising to be a day of art and culture with the added bonus of cosplay!

Manga Art exhibition at The Vestry House, Richmond (August 15-16)

The exhibition will be taking place at the Vestry House in Richmond, Surrey this weekend. The festival is curated by well-known Japanese lecturer Akemi Solloway, and is a place for British manga artists to display and sell their work.

The exhibition itself is free so you don't have to worry about your empty wallet after Amecon. There will also be stalls selling anime goods, as well as cultural activities and a cosplay photoshoot and tea party meet.

For more information and specific times, please visit the official website:

(I've been asked to point out that although the website still states it on the timetable, please note that the charity tea party has been rescheduled and will not be happening that weekend!)
