More About the Event

Kupala is a traditional pre-Christian Slavic holiday, originally celebrated on the shortest night of the year. This year the festival will feature collaborations with a growing population of displaced Ukrainian artists who have recently made their way to the UK.

Expect traditional midsummer night’s floral crown making, Ukrainian food, and bandura playing, alongside performances and installations by artists challenging the notions of coloniality, gender, and cultural heritage.

The event is family-friendly & open to everyone! Please come along equipped with your own torches, reusable drink containers (cups/mugs), and a sense of curiosity.
