Cultural and entertaining actions in AFI Palace
Even though AFI Palace opened its doors in Pardubice not so long ago, it became an organizer/co-organizer of many interesting cultural and entertainment activities.
In the past the visitors to the AFI Palace could see shows with Scottish dancers, clarinetists from our Belgian sister-town Wargem, and in connection with the festival of Bohuslav Martin, international choirs sang here. We also had an autograph-session of the ice-hockey stars here in the AFI Palace just before the benefit ice-hockey match Otokar Janecky.
