A unique place, Potters Fields Park by the London City Hall, will host the Polish festival for the second time.

The aim of the festival is to promote Polish culture and art, improve the image of our country abroad as well as propagate a positive image of Poland. We also wanted to help Polish organisations such as Polish community song and dance ensembles, which have been fostering Polish culture and art for many years – said the festival organiser, Ewelina Krzysztofik.

The entertainment during the festival, which takes almost the whole day (between 13:00 and 18:00), will be provided by Polish community song and dance ensembles: Orlęta, Karolinka and Mazury.

The Orlęta Ensemble will present a funny and fascinating staging of Polish folklore, full of dancing, singing and flirting. Their cheerful and energetic performances in Poland, Great Britain and other countries made it called “a great and natural group”.

The Karolinka Ensemble is a Polish community song and dance ensemble from London with three generations of Poles living in the Great Britain performing in it. It associates not only Poles born in the UK but also the young immigration – in the last few years there are more and more excellent dancers from Poland joining the group.

When Poland accessed the European Union, the Mazury Ensemble represented Poland at the Foreign Office in London. In 2006 it was one of 22 groups taking part in the Kashubia International Folklore Festival. In 2009, to celebrate the ensemble’s 60th anniversary, it gave a gala performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.

We have prepared many attractions both for adults and children. They include competitions organised by our sponsors and media patrons. There will be face painting, competitions and many other attractions for the younger ones. Those avid for Polish cuisine will have a chance to taste grilled dishes as well as casseroles, pierogi, cabbage rolls, croquets, pancakes, wafers and Polish drinks. We are the only organisers of a Polish festival in London with a licence to sell alcohol. 

Admission to the festival is free of charge.
