Say ‘dzień dobry’ to Polish culture this Saturday

Polish flavours, crafts and culture will be in plentiful supply, when Ravenscourt Park hosts a Polish Heritage day this Saturday.

The event, organised by charities London Spark and Medical Aid for Poland, will mark Polish Constitution Day, which was celebrated by Poles all over the world earlier this week.

To mark that occasion the Polish Social and Cultural Association (POSK) on King Street in Hammersmith held a gala concert, with an English translation of the 1791 constitution on display.


Polish Heritage day will take place in Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith

But Saturday’s event, which is one of many across the UK marking the occasion, will have more of a family feel – and will be open to anyone.

There will be a Polish bakery, as well as delicacies from the POSK restaurant Łowiczanka, with favourites including pączki (a type of doughnut) and pierogi (sweet or savoury stuffed dumplings).

A healthy club will be promoting jams and honey, both favourites of any Polish household, and will be accompanied by a juice-making bicycle.

Workshops will include katefiona Art, who will be showing how to make ornamental angels, with others to be confirmed.

A treasure hunt will help teach children about Polish myths, legends and history: from Nicolaus Copernicus to Solidarity.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy folk dance, and traditional costumes.

Entry is free, and all are welcome: 12 noon to 4pm, Saturday 6 May, Ravenscourt Park.
