Calling all Hello Kitty lovers! This weekend, all your Japanese-bobtail-inspired dreams will come true…

An immersive and super-sized Hello Kitty experience at London’s Southbank will celebrate the 45th birthday of the world’s cutest cuddly toy.


This Saturday (October 26), the experience will be open to visitors and super-fans from across the city. From 11am, Hello Kitty herself will be meeting fans and celebrating her birthday with them, making for the ultimate selfie with your favourite feline friend! There’ll also be some great giveaways throughout the day, for fans of all ages.

TOP TIP: While you’re enjoying all the Hello Kitty action, don’t forget to post a photo or video, hashtag #hellokitty45 on Facebook or Instagram, and tag @hellokittyeu, for your chance to win your very own Hello Kitty goodie bag!


For those who can’t make it on Saturday, do not fear! The Hello Kitty festivities do not end here…

With the iconic character’s actual birthday coming up on November 1, her creators, Sanrio, have collaborated with bubble tea legends Chatime, to launch their first exclusive drink. Chatime’s restaurant in London’s Chinatown will host Hello Kitty on November 2.

Over in Westfield London, there will be a pop-up at Ichiba in the Japan Centre, Europe’s largest Japanese food hall. Throughout November, you can enjoy exclusive Hello Kitty food, drinks and merchandise!

No times to paws for thought – get yourself down to Southbank to celebrate the world’s most adorable animal teddy!
