WELCOME TO OGNISKO POLSKIE - THE POLISH HEARTH

Ognisko Polskie - the Polish Hearth is one of London’s oldest Polish Clubs which today hosts a variety of theatrical, musical and other cultural events.

Founded in 1939 to maintain the cohesion of the free Polish community in the United Kingdom during the Second World War, it went on to become the centre of social and cultural life for the Polish community in exile. It has since served to provide a home for Poles to meet and build friendships, as a place where Polish culture and history is kept alive and where Polish identity and independence are maintained.

 

OUR PATRON HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE DUKE OF KENT

The Duke and Duchess of Kent had visited Poland in 1937 and had close links and friendships with members of the Polish aristocracy. After the start of the Second World War, the Duke showed his support for the country by bestowing his patronage on the Polish House after its inauguration on the 16th July 1940.
