A three-day Polish Festival will be held at Acton Market as part of ten days of festivities to celebrate the holiday season, Action Acton announced today. (For a full list of events, see box, right)

The Polish Festival, to be held from 17-19 December, will feature over 20 stalls selling Polish delicacies including pancakes, dumplings, and sweets.

There will also be other stalls selling amber jewellery, arts and crafts. All the items will be direct from Poland. There will also be performances of traditional Polish music and dancing throughout the three days. The Polish Festival will be a great draw for the growing number of Acton residents with
roots in Poland and Eastern Europe.

"We hope that our local Polish community will join together with all of Acton to celebrate in the Town Square,' says Acton Market Manager Alex Watson. "Acton Market will be the centre for Acton's celebration of the festive season."

Ten days of special Winter Festival markets and events will take place at Acton Market, beginning with a tree-lighting ceremony at 5pm on Friday December 14th at the large tree outside Morrison's supermarket. Throughout the week, there will be carol singers, live music and market stalls selling
handcrafted gifts including jewellery, clothing and art. Father Christmas will be in his grotto on Saturday 22nd to hand out presents to young children.
