2019 Kalady and Batlejka in London (Christmas celebration)

Sat, 11/09/2019 - 15:12

All members and friends of the Belarusian community in Britain are cordially invited to the traditional Kaliady (Christmas) celebration organised by Anglo-Belarusian Society on Saturday 14 December 2019, 2pm at St Cyril’s Belarusian Religious and Cultural Centre (Marian House, Holden Avenue, London N12 8HY).

There will be the traditional, well-loved Batlejka (Belarusian Christmas puppet show) given by Paval Šaǔcoǔ and his troupe.

Saint Nicholas will be giving out presents, so please, if you are coming with children, make sure to have a present prepared for each child and hand it over to Paval before the performance.

All willing will have an opportunity to sing Belarusian and English carols.

There is no charge for this event but we encourage donations (£5 for ABS members and £8 for non-members).

Please bring with you traditional seasonal food and drink – both Belarusian and British.
