DAY OF CULTURE AT KROLIKARNIA
I saw the advertisement for the Day of Culture at Krolikarnia and went along to see what it was all about.
The first thing to mention is that I saw no culture. The only culture available was in the Krolikarnia house, but then you had to pay to get in to see it.
Surely, if they are inviting thousands of people for a culture picnic at a museum, the museum should be open and free, shouldn’t it? I don’t understand why they would invite everybody along and charge for the only culture that was there. That seems greedy to me.
Walking around the grounds, I was led to ask who organised the event and why. It was nasty. It was dirty. It was low budget. And it was dangerous.
Yes; it was DANGEROUS.
The lights above the stage were not fixed with chains. Bare cables were laid across the pathways. I saw gas canisters standing unsecured. And the bars were not only nasty and unprofessional (a very poor brand representation of Zywiec), but they were stacking beer barrels on slopes that could topple and roll down the hill.
Speaking of bars, how could they get away with serving beer where kids were – isn’t that illegal, these days? As far as I know, the alcohol must be in an area where kids are not allowed.
If they haven’t got the money to do the event properly, or don’t know how to do it properly, they should’t do it at all. Putting people at risk is not an option, especially at a ‘family’ event where kids are everywhere.
All in all, this was a poor event. Everybody there probably had a reasonably good time, but they deserved a whole lot better for their ‘day of culture’.
