Diplomats must make sure their country has a good relationship with other nations. They try to ensure that their citizens are welcomed and comfortable in a new country. One of the ways to accomplish this is by creating events. Here are some popular cultural events organised by foreign embassies in the UK.
Romanian Music Festival
The loud, adrenaline-fueled feast is a showcase of Romanian music. The event is organised through the Romanian embassy in the UK to give people a taste of their country’s music. It is through this cultural event that people in Britain can enjoy the culture of Romania.
Polish Heritage Days
The primary purpose of the event is to promote Polish traditions and culture. The opening of the event is done by the ambassador. Poland and Britain have had a good relationship for quite some time now. Did you know Poland’s embassy building in London is their oldest worldwide? The event involves concerts, lectures, and exhibitions promoting the Polish culture.
Day of the Dead
The excellent relationship between Mexico and Britain has led to Britain having one of the most significant Spanish cultural events. The festival is traditionally celebrated on 1 and 2 November. Mexicans in Britain celebrate the festival just like in Mexico. This is only possible due to the Mexican embassy in the UK.
The Spanish festival is characterised by visits to graves and altars. People also enjoy traditional music and food. This festival is a great way to help Mexicans feel at home in Britain and teach the British about their culture.
Many other embassies also host events to showcase their culture and the things that make them unique.
