We hope to find sponsors to help fund the 2,620 mile journey from Edinburgh to Poland (and back!) in order to handover hand-crafted and embroidered Polish Folk costumes from Scotland to Poland – This will be Edinburgh’s “Nasza Dolina” final Tour & Concert in Wodzislaw Śląski, where we will donate around 50 pairs of beautifully crafted costumes from 5 regions of Poland (Kurpie, Nowy Sącz, Spisz, Lublin, Śląsk) to the Zespół Pieśni i Tańca Vladislavia.
Our retirement from performing will be with one final concert (with Vladislavia), in our director's family home town of Wodzisław Śląski. His father fled Poland during WWII and settled in Scotland passing on his love of Polish culture to his daughter & sons.
We would be extremely grateful for any help in realising this dream to end our Polish dance career with a flourish and to help another group bloom & grow in our forefather's homeland.
