The famous annual event between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge takes place on the 12 and 13 September this year.  The Polish delights on offer will include a blacksmith, a Kashubian ‘snuff’ maker, Poles on stilts, amber jewellery, pottery and embroidery showcases, two children’s choirs, a jazz ensemble, a folk sculptor and a wealth of tourist information on the fascinating destination that is Poland.

The Polish National Tourist Office (PNTO) will be joined by partners from the Pomorskie region – the home of Gdansk – and Wielkopolska – the home of Poznan – as well as representatives from the wonderful spa town of Rabka.  Festival organisers promise dance, sculpture, music, movies, food and drink, live performances and whole host of other entertainment on the banks of the Thames.
