What we'll deliver:
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.
