Following that, the Anglo-Belarusian Society cordially invites its members and friends to the Mother Language Day celebration, with poetry readings and a special guest appearance of a prominent Belarusian author/ poet TBC.
Our annual Mother Language Day celebration will be organised with the participation of the Francis Skaryna Belarusian Library and Museum.
The event was inaugurated by the late Vera Rich to mark UNESCO Mother Language Day and involves poetry reading in all languages particularly Belarusian and English.
Read your favourite poem – works of modern poets or old favourites of your choice in Belarusian, English, Scots etc (no need to learn by heart!). Children are very welcome to participate.
The readings will start at 4 pm and will be followed by refreshments.
The suggested minimum donation for ABS members – £5, for non-members – £10 (cash only).
