Come and Join us at the British Fair in Umeda!
The British Fair at Hankyu Department Store in Osaka has been running for 30 years and is one of the most popular events on the calendar. People crowd the Fair to see and sample traditional British goods and food; cream teas with scones are a sellout, with foods like cheese, tea and jam as well as biscuits and cakes selling well. Young British designers display their fashion wares too.
This year ARK is delighted and privileged to participate in this year’s Fair. Some of you will remember that ten years ago we joined Battersea Dogs Home from London at the same event, when the Fair’s theme was ” Life with Dogs.” That contact enabled eight ARK dogs to travel to London for adoption through Battersea Dogs Home.
The Fair will run between October 9th and October 15th 2013 and will be held on the 9th Floor of the splendid new Hankyu Umeda Main Store building, in the Event Hall, Shukusai Plaza. Please come along to see the Fair and to visit ARK’s booth, we look forward to welcoming you. We will be selling ARK’s 2014 calendars and other ARK goods.
Opening times as follows:
October 9, 10, 13, 14 10.00 to 20.00
October 11, 12 10.00 to 21.00
October 15 10.00 to 18.00
Please be aware that times may change so better to check on Hankyu’s homepage nearer the event.
Elizabeth Oliver, ARK’ s founder and a British national, will be giving a talk about ARK’s activities in the Event Hall on October 12th.
