Wrocław Uncut’s Weekend Event Picks: July 20th-22nd

Festivals, concerts, sporting events and more

Every weekend Wrocław is home to countless events from different genres, whether it be sport, art, culture, music or film.

Here's just a sample of a few things going on in Wrocław between Friday and Sunday:

Śląsk Wrocław vs Cracovia Kraków


The Ekstraklasa returns as Śląsk Wrocław take on Crakovia Kraków. 

Tickets, which vary between 20 and 40zł, can be bought online here. Wrocław Uncut recommends watching in sector C or sector D (the latter of which is dedicated to families).

Those who fancy a dose of the 'ultras' experience can go to sector B, but must remember to follow the 'rules' laid out by the hardcore fans who occupy the stand every matchday. 

Bogdan's Journey at Nowy Horyzonty Cinema & Q&A

Tonight at 6pm cinemagoers have the chance to catch a special screening of Bogdan's Journey, directed by Michal Jaskulski and Lawrence Loewinger. 

The movie tells the true story of a Catholic Pole who launched a crusade to reconcile Poles and Jews over a massacre that happened 69 years ago.

Bogdan Białek, whom the film is based on, will be present at the event and he is also scheduled to take part in an English-language Q&A after the screening.

Brave Festival

The Brave Festival is an ethnic festival that strives to promote art, music and culture from persecuted groups. Every year the festival has sought to showcase colourful performances from artists and performers from all over the globe, bringing some truly unique acts to Wroclaw along the way.

The Brave Festival – the festival of the brave, of the people who say where they are from, what their values are, their traditions and spirituality. This is not a festival about works of art but about the art which can save and protect thousands of forgotten, abandoned, lonely cultures and people.

We had to create the Brave Festival to fight against people being chased away from their own culture, from their own sensitivity; the festival is about the world that is dying, which will pass away if we don't do anything to stop this process at least a little. It's the Festival of the people who do not agree to follow models promoted by mass culture, who seek for the deepest possible sources of inspiration – inner inspiration. Sensitive and tolerant people who are not afraid to deepen their sensitivity.

Brave Festival Organisers

The 2018 Brave Festival is being held under the banner 'Invisible' and will feature a series of "unique, almost unaccessible artistic performances". According to Brave Festival organisers, 11 of the invited artists or artistic groups are connected together by social aspects as well as fact they all use art to facilitate social change.
