The Russian Culture group arranges meetings on different aspects of Russian culture. The format of the meetings varies. Sometimes a member gives an illustrated talk or leads a discussion; on other occasions, each member is asked to research a different aspect of a particular topic. Members do not need to know much about Russia or the Russian language, as they can actively participate with a minimum of background reading. We meet in members’ homes on the first Wednesday of each month at 2.30 pm. Contact Heather Haslett for details of future topics and venues.
