Sweets… Family… Love… Fear… Togetherness… Innocence… Romantic… Goodwill… Acceptance… Help… Children… Lights… Imagination… Christmas… The Nutcracker.

Many thoughts, impressions and feelings linked with this world-famous ballet swirl in our mind at this time of year, a time of contrasts between the dark days or evenings and the lights that begin to surround us more and more as the Holiday time approaches. A time that feels especially different for most expats if you’re spending it away from your home, family and friends.

Let us therefore invite you to a pleasant event where you might explore any of the above-mentioned elements, maybe awake your inner child, eager to play and imagine, or maybe just to spend a leisurely evening, meet and chat with fellow expats as well as the BEC team who are happy to prepare this occasion for you.

You can look forward to:

  • themed games and crafts for children
  • meeting expat ballet dancers from Brno National Theatre’s production of the Nutcracker between 5 – 7 pm
  • a chance to win tickets to see The Nutcracker or take part in a special Nutcracker backstage tour
  • Christmas punch and sweets

This year, we’ve selected the stylish Café Era as our venue – when you get there, you’ll understand why… A mere 10-minute ride from Česká with tram 9 or 11.

Please book your place(s) via the button above due to capacity reasons.

We are looking forward to a nice cosy time with you all.
