The Polish Heritage Days is an annual festival organised and run under the patronage of the Polish Embassy in London. The idea behind Polish Heritage Days is to promote and celebrate Polish culture, heritage of past generations, and Polish contribution to cultural, economic, and social life of the United Kingdom.
Polish Heritage Days runs throughout the month of May in the whole United Kingdom. The festival starts on the weekend after the symbolic date of 3rd May, when in 1791 Poland proclaimed its modern codified constitution (as the first country in Europe and the second in the world after the United States) a symbol of freedom and equality. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the day of 2nd May, which in Poland and in Polish communities around the world is celebrated as the Polish Diaspora Day and Polish Flag Day.
