Dubrovnik and Great Britain have always been so close – thus, the idea about the events such as the British Days in Dubrovnik comes so naturally. This fulfilled week will take place from 10th to 12th October 2018.
And what to expect? :) An iconic London double-decker which will be parked on Pile at the entrance to the Old City of Dubrovnik on Wednesday the 10th of October. Of course, there will be some traditional British tea and biscuits served to visitors, and children will enjoy Escape Room, football… In the Visia Cinema, some of the best of recent British theatre and film productions, including Hamlet with Benedict Cumberbatch, will be presented, along with an exhibition of British artists who took part in this year’s Organ Vida festival.
Along with the Bonsai Volunteer Centre, British experts will share experiences of volunteering in healthcare. The historian Judith Everand will explain the interesting stories behind the island of Lokrum where, according to legend, Richard the Lionheart was saved after being shipwrecked. A saxophone quartet from the British Army and the Beatles Revival Band are in charge of the musical entertainment, and at the Dubrovnik Beer Company organizes the pub quiz. The grand finale is the League of Nations with, of course, Croatia vs England match.
The British Days in Dubrovnik are organized by the British Embassy in the Republic of Croatia and the City of Dubrovnik, and the programme is free.
