Kolędy - Christmas Carols

Starting at three o’clock in the afternoon, our Ognisko Christmas Celebration will be Kolędy, very much a family affair. We will celebrate Sw. Mikolaj in a very traditional way, singing Polish and English carols, complete with mince pies, pierniki, spiced beer and mulled wine; a real Anglo-Polish mix! The singing will be led by the well-known baritone Maciej O’Shea, who you will remember from our Rewia in July and it promises to be a very festive and uplifting occasion. Children under 10 are free!
