Xpat Community Ezine / Thursday 03 November 2016
Dear Member,  your usual helping of local community news and events awaits you below.

First up this week is a tribute to all the people and companies that are supporting the annual Xpat Party for Charity on 4 November.

Actually it was on the evening of November 4th that Guy Fawkes was caught with his barrels of gunpowder. To this day it’s often said he was "the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions" :)

Anyway, for sure this year in Budapest he will be remembered at this British style 'Guy Fawkes Bonfire Night' event  for the international community, which will feature a virtual bonfire and laser fireworks, plus a few surprises, all adding up to make it an enjoyable and worthwhile social networking event.

It's a feel good event as we'll all be helping trusted charities - click here for info about the charities involved - whilst having a blast at the 16th anniversary party of XpatLoop.com

we are excited to announce that Lionsgate Entertainment and Mid Atlantic Films has generously arranged an auction prize to visit the set of ‘Robin Hood: Origins’ starring Jamie Foxx, Taron Egerton and  Eve Hewson.

The Capital With The Eye Of An Expat
The Capital With The Eye Of An ExpatBy Mary Murphy: One of the many joys of living in Budapest is the huge amount of activity. There’s always something going on. Places to visit. Exhibitions to see. Concerts to attend. So much so that there is a danger that life in Hungary revolves around the capital and we don’t take or make the time to venture further afield. more »
