Are Poles fun? Can Poles sing? Are there any famous Poles? Come to our event on 18th of May 2019 and find out! This is an unique opportunity to learn about the biggest minority in the UK.

And you can find yourself celebrating of 250-years anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Poland and Great Britain. You can then rest at neighbouring picnic and enjoy amazing food or watch Polish Talent Show. There will be also integrating workshops and games you could find interesting. If you are Polish you are more than welcome to join Talent Show or/and present your service/products on the stalls.

Why it's a great idea:

We have organised already two similar picnics for families and curious adults in Ravenscourt Park. Both have proved that Londoners are open to explore and appreciate Polish culture. They were attended by 3000 people. We try to bring people together to make our neighbourhood nicer and make people smile often as well as understand each other better. Once you dance together, it is more fun commute together, right? During PHD we celebrate important events for our communities. So, last year we gather to mark out centennial of regaining independence by Poland as well as gaining voting rights by women. There was Royal Wedding that day so we sang along congrats song 'Sto lat' for newlyweds. This year we want to acknowledge centennial of establishing formal diplomatic relations between Poland and Great Britain. So come and join us on 18th of May 2019. Track and treat! As this is going to be another historical treasure hunt and picnic in Ravenscourt Park for families and curious adults.

Steps to get it done:

  • Prepare necessary documentation as Emergency Plan, Risk Assessment, Fire Risk Assessment, Event Management Plan
  • Develop cultural programme
  • Organise Polish Talent Show
  • Liaise with vendors

The project is delivered with our media partners Polish Radio London, Magazine Cooltura, Polish Saturday Schools. It is supported by Polish Embassy, Polish Culture Institute and European project 'Together Working for Inclusion at Schools' TWInS.
