Screen Shot 2017-06-16 at 11.31.40The Anglo-Belarusian Society invites its members and friends to the traditional Kupalle (Midsummer) celebration  in the garden of 52 Penn Road, London N7 9RE on Saturday 1 July 2017, 4pm-10pm.

Programme:

  • Dramatized readings from The Pinsk Gentry by V. Dunin-Marcinkievič (in Belarusian and English, translation by Vera Rich)
  • Making flower crowns, the Witch and decorating the Kupalle wheel (donations of flowers by 3pm will be greatly appreciated)
  • Games and songs – Kupalinka – Jumping over the fire

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, wine, beer and soft drinks will be gratefully received, but – please – NO SPIRITS. There will be a collection to cover expenses (£7 for members, £9 for non-members).

This year’s Kupalle is made possible thanks to the support of the Belarusian Charitable Trust and the Association of Belarusians in Great Britain, who provide the venue for the event.
