Break-dancing santas, bewigged 70s disco dancers, bekilted bagpipers, chocolate fountains and fireworks. These were just some of the treats served up at the Anglo-Dutch Christmas Ball in Krakow.
On Dec. 8, within the wonderful setting of the Tomaszowice Manor House, British, Dutch and Polish business communities danced the night away in a wild evening of extravagance which mixed dance styles and Christmas traditions from around the world.
On arrival guests were greeted by sparkling snow angels, English mince pies and mulled wine; at midnight, as fireworks filled the sky, Dutch oliebollen. In between, a gourmet meal was accompanied by a fine selection of wines, bourbons and speciality vodkas, a spectacular chocolate fountain and mountain of Dutch cheeses.
A charity raffle raised almost 5,000 zloty for Krakow’s Community Youth Clubs, which will send over 200 children on a variety of much-deserved trips – an excursion to the Tatras, to the cinema, to the theatre and to an adventure playground.
The ball was organized by South Poland Business Link on behalf of the British Polish Chamber of Commerce and The Netherlands Business Support Office.
