UBCC Ukrainian Christmas Reception


ubccUkrainian Christmas Reception

Tuesday 14 January 2014

London, UK

Reception: 18:00 – 21:00
Speeches: 19:00

Christmas celebrations in Ukraine last from 6 January, when families have traditional Christmas Eve supper, to 19 January, the day of Vodohrestya (baptism by water) epitomising the tradition of christening in waters of river Jordan. The UBCC would once again like to give its members an opportunity to celebrate Christmas one more time before the festive season is over.

The Ukrainian Christmas Reception will take place at the Bridewell Hall, St Bride Foundation, Bride Lane, Fleet Street, London EC4Y 8EQ (nearest Tube station – Blackfriars).  In the programme:

–          festive greetings from the Embassy of Ukraine, special guests, the UBCC Board of Directors and sponsors of the raffle

–          traditional Ukrainian Christmas cuisine

–          live performance of Ukrainian Christmas carols, including the original version of the famous “Shchedryk” by Mykola Leontovych (also known as “Carol of the Bells”)

–          Christmas charity raffle

Admission is by invitation only.
