Kardjali's Christmas news

In addition, Kardjali announces that dozens of children met Santa Claus through the initiative 'Every Sunday at the theatre'. 

For several days,  actors welcomed the many who wanted to see the good white-bearded old man live and receive their gift from him in the puppet hall. Due to the introduced anti-epidemic measures, the places were limited, but additional performances were realized to meet the great demand.
