For the third consecutive year, Romania takes part in The Mayor’s Thames Festival, with a traditional stand and a series of live acts organised by the Romanian Cultural Institute in London.
The stand is part of the New European Village section, which highlights cultures from Central and Eastern European countries with rich heritages, defined by centuries of traditions. Romania will present traditional crafts such as embroidery, weaving and live loom demonstrations. The guides of the event are Niculina Andronache, Elena Vaculisteanu and Steliana Baltuta from the Ethnographic Museum in Botosani, who will weave and talk about popular costumes, textiles and embroidery.
