Аn International Festival of Nations is scheduled to take place at the British School of Sofia on the 10th of June, 2023. We extend an invitation to each and every one of you to join us in celebrating the cultural diversity that enriches our beloved BSS community.

Here are more details about the event itself:

The festival will commence with a Parade of Nations - our students, dressed in traditional costumes will march through the school grounds with the flags of the countries they represent.

On the stage in the courtyard of BSS WonderWorld the festive program begins with the participation of our students and special guests. You will enjoy songs and dances from far and near, beautiful costumes and inspiring performances in different languages.

The tents of the International Festival participants will be set up next to the stage. Our parents and friends from embassies in Sofia will be preparing delicious, typical dishes, demonstrating crafts, and showcasing souvenirs that are representative of their countries.

We encourage guests to enhance the authenticity and excitement of the festival by adorning themselves in national costumes or other traditional attire.

Furthermore, this year's festival is dedicated to a special charitable cause. All proceeds raised during the event will be donated to the Sofia Zoo, specifically for the conservation efforts of the critically endangered antelope species, Addax. In collaboration with the British School of Sofia, we will be adopting an Addax for a period of one year. Currently, the zoo is home to three of these magnificent animals.
