UKRAINIAN VYSHYVANKA MARCH in traditional Ukrainian embroidered shirts – SUN 20 May – St

ROUTE: Marble Arch – Hyde Park – Knightsbridge – High Street Kensington – Holland Park – Statue of Saint Volodymyr

At the end of the Vyshyvanka March, all participants are welcome to come to the Ukrainian Cultural Centre to see a show prepared by London Euromaidan and the teachers and parents of ‘Krinichenka’ school.

Vyshyvanka is a name for the embroidered shirt of the Ukrainian national costume. The embroidery is full of symbolism and many people, especially in the old days, viewed vyshyvanka as a talisman. Every region of Ukraine has their special vysyhyvanka techniques and patterns.

Vyshyvanka Day is intended to unite Ukrainians all over the world regardless of their gender, social status, religious beliefs or political opinions.

In the last few years, Vyshyvanka Festival has turned into a global cultural diplomacy opportunity for the numerous communities around the world, and a national statement inside the country.

The London Ukrainian community has run this Festival every year since 2012 and welcomes all nationalities to join in the celebration by wearing beautiful embroidered garments during peaceful and joyful processions.

This event is organised by London Euromaidan, AUGB London Branch and British-Ukrainian Aid
