Teikyo Festival is always one of the biggest and most exciting events in our calendar, and this year was no exception!

The students worked very hard and the LHCC was transformed with decorations in the run-up to the festival, including a huge Mt Fuji by the entrance! On the day, the guests could experience a Japanese tea ceremony, watch several martial arts performances and listen to moving music recitals. Many also tried their hand at traditional arts such as calligraphy and origami.

They also had the chance to purchase Japanese-themed books from our book sale, authentic Yakisoba (noodles), and origami carefully made by the Teikyo students. Most importantly, the proceeds of our annual Teikyo festival always go to charity, and this year’s festival raised an amazing £925 for good causes throughout Durham and beyond!

Many thanks to the guests who attended on the day - and of course all the volunteers who worked so hard to make Teikyo Festival 2016 a resounding success. We hope to see you again next year!
