Hungarian Culture Days 2015
Hungarian Culture Days is an annual, vibrant 4-day cultural festival in Dublin, showcasing the very best in Hungarian culture, art and heritage. We here at The Green Door Florist Clontarf had the privilege of sponsoring this year's event which took place at the Smock Alley Theatre on Friday last and what a wonderful night it was.
The grand hall was alive with chatter and colour upon entry but it wasn't long till a hush took over and the wonderful Hungarian Culture Days piece (composed by Márton Sipos) filled the room, set against our autumnal arrangements. After some brief speeches there was also performances by the Hungarian Chamber Choir, Zsuzsanna Kálló Bogdáné with Péter Sebestyén on the traditional Hungarian instrument ‘citera’, Knapweed, a Hungarian folk dance group based in Omagh, Nagy Gyula, a baritone singer from the London National Studio and even Padraig O'Neill and Ian Kinsella with a traditional Irish performance.
To complement the music and dance there was some Hungarian food and wine on offer which went down a treat. In fact, you might even say the wine went down a little too easily 🙂 As the night drew to a close, we were already looking forward to next year's event.
