Kupalle (Midsummer) Celebration in London on Saturday 22 June 2013

The Anglo-Belarusian Society invites its members and friends to the traditional Kupalle (Midsummer) celebration on Saturday 22 June 2013 at 3pm – 10pm in the garden of 39 Holden Road, London N12 8HS.

Programme:

  • Making flower crowns, the witch and decorating the wheel (we shall expect helpers to arrive with or without flowers at 2pm)
  • Photo-booth for those willing to have a picture in traditional Belarusian costume
  • Belarusian raffle (please let us have your donations of Belarusian produce at least 30min before the event)
  • Games, songs (download songs) and dancing
  • Kupalinka & Kupalič
  • Fern-flower (Paparać-kvietka) hunt (children)
  • Jumping over the fire
  • Flower crowns at the Dollis Brook

The Anglo-Belarusian Society takes all efforts to ensure that this will once again be a celebration in the true Belarusian ethnographical tradition. Please assist us if possible by bringing along flower-crowns and wearing Belarusian costumes. The use of the Belarusian language will be encouraged!

All gifts of cold food, both home-made and bought, will be welcome. Please note that there will NOT be a barbeque this year.

Offerings of wine, beer and soft drinks will also be gratefully received, but – please – NO SPIRITS.

There will be a collection to cover the expenses (£7 for members, £9 for
non-members).

The evening will conclude at 10pm.

Pictures from last year’s Kipalle are available here.
