Polish Heritage Days is a series of events intended to promote Polish culture, national heritage and contribution into the cultural, economic and social life of Great Britain. Events staged as part of Polish Heritage Days were developed by Polish community organisations under the patronage of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London with the backing of the Polish Tourism Organisation International Office.
The already third edition of the event was launched right after our national holiday commemorating the adoption of the Constitution of 3 May. This year Polish Heritage Days feature more than 150 events planned in 50 cities, i.a. London, Oxford and Manchester.
The celebrations have already included several fairs, picnics, sports events and workshops. Numerous cultural events, such as meetings with authors and exhibitions in galleries and culture centres, are also on the agenda. In addition, there will be no shortage of music events and dance shows and competitions. The event organisers also remembered about the youngest spectators, for whom family picnics with art, language and exercise games have been scheduled. Materials compiled by Polish Tourism Organisation (Polska Organizacja Turystyczna – POT) made it possible for the participants of all events to learn more about Polish highlights, the beauty of our country, its history, culture, cuisine and traditions.
As in previous years, the events are highly popular among both the Polish community residing in Great Britain and British nationals. Finally, they are an excellent opportunity to strengthen mutual relations and discover the role of Poland in building Polish-British ties.
