No Screening this Saturday, 7th January 2023

Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!

No JAFWA until Saturday 14th January 2023!

That most important date in the Japanese calendar – New Year’s Day – has dawned, so I hope everyone has managed to cry forth the traditional Japanese greeting Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu! (aka “Congratulations on the New Year”) for the dawning of the new year.

We will let you celebrate the festivities for another week. JAFWA intends to return after recovering from the New Year’s break, on January 14th, 2023 at the normal start time of just after ~5:00PM (I think we managed to get our booking for the Hall in before the Doctor Who club “Westlodge” booked the afternoon).
