After dinner, we will be entertained by the vivacious Lea Sirk, who sang for Slovenia in the Eurovision Song Contest Finals in 2019. Lea comes from Primorska – the Adriatic coast of Slovenia.

There will also be an attractive tombola with prizes including skis donated by Elan, and a flight voucher worth €1,000 donated by Trimo.
