We helped with ZUŠ Open in Neratov

31.5. - 2.6.2019

At the last weekend of May we experienced a bit different Weekend. We often work a lot with our hands, but this time we helped with production of one of the events of the ZUŠ Open festival in our favorite Neratov. A group of 16 volunteers has done wonderful 128 hours of work. 

ZUŠ Open is a festival where students of elementary art schools show what they learnt and so we had the opportunity to experience a nice weekend and get to know several hundred talented musicians from the Hradec Králové region. The music revived Neratov almost the whole Saturday – both outside and in the church. Our work consisted mainly in coordinating parking in three places. Hundreds of cars arrived at the event, several buses, motorbikes, bicycles and other means of transport. In order to fit every car into a parking spot, not to make people go to concerts from far away and no car was blocked, we were at the action to prevent such situations. But that was not all, of course. We helped to spread the benches at the church before and after concerts, and two groups were also weeding plants at the garden. Those skilled of us also tried to plant flowers. And because the Weekends are not only about work (especially in calm Neratov), ​​there was also time for leisure activities – in this case it was an excursion to the brewery, which recently opened, a talk about the history of Neratov, the church and the activities of the Neratov Association, a walk to the nearby abandoned church, having a drink in the local pub (and especially the local fruit beer, which was truly amazing), and of course visiting the church and listening to the great number of great concerts live.

If you want to have a calm Weekend, visit Neratov … and next time go there with us!
