This story is over

The ever-popular Japan Festival has returned to Lincoln for the fourth time, kicking off with an all-day Nintendo Gaming Event.

Lincoln residents young and old gathered at the Drill Hall on Saturday, February 11 for the festival favourite, featuring a number of consoles and games stretching back to the early days of Nintendo, as well as celebrating more recent advances.

The eight-day 2017 Japan Festival takes place from February 11 to 18 across various venues and locations in the city.
