45th Bal Polski – A Fundraising Event

28th January 2017

Sheraton Grand London Park Lane

London W1


The Organising Committee of the 45th Polish Ball, 45 Bal Polski is relaunching this prestigious fundraising event, as an activity of ‘Bal Polski CIC’ and as an organisational member of ZPWB (Zjednocznie Polskie w Wielkiej Brytani). In these turbulent times, the Polish Ball has an important role – this is an unifying community event that celebrates the achievements of the Polish British Community and businesses in the UK.



We are celebrating every Pole’s UK Polish story.

The 45th Polish Ball is Honouring:

Tadeusz Kosciuszko 200th anniversary. 

A Polish military engineer and a military leader who became a national hero in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, and the United States. He fought in the Polish – Lithuanian Commonwealth’s struggles against Russia and Prussia, and on the American side in the American Revolutionary War. As Supreme Commander of the Polish National Armed Forces, he led the 1794 Kościuszko Uprising against the Russian occupation, which was ultimately unsuccessful and led to the Third Partition of Poland in 1795.

Projekt Polonia 2017: Stroke Association UK strokeReducing Information Inequality

This year we will be launching Project Polonia, that builds on our 44th Bal Polski work with Alzheimer’s Society

  • Translation into Polish, distribution and printing of Stroke Association information leaflets
  • Sourcing a group of Polish Community Ambassadors to work with the Stroke Association in the UK and fundraising for their training.

Projekt Polonia is an endeavour of the Polish community in the UK to make a difference; raising the awareness of information and expertise made available by UK charities, to support Polish speakers whose families and loved ones may be affected, and give them the tools and knowledge that until now has only been accessible to those with a good command of English.

This project raises the awareness of the needs of the Polish community in the UK, and that we as a community are actively supporting each other.
