Indulge in all things Polish right here in Singapore! It’s an eye-opening cultural experience for me. I loved it!
Coming all the way from Ziemia Bolestawiecka in Southern Poland and cultivating rich traditions of Polish folk music and dance for over 40 years, I was indeed mesmerized by the Polish folk ensemble’s very first performance in Singapore and in Asia. The ensemble members will also run fun dance workshops as well as present Polish Easter traditions during art and craft sessions this Polish weekend.
Get ready to see and taste healthy products from RL9 and Food by Ann brands, founded by famous Polish footballer Robert Lewandowski and his wife Anna Lewandowska – a fitness coach and healthy eating enthusiast.
