The Russian Culture group arranges meetings on different aspects of Russian culture each term. The theme for the spring term 2019 will be music, and in the summer term, we plan to concentrate on social and environmental issues. The format of the meetings varies. Sometimes a member gives an illustrated talk, sometimes one or two people lead 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 are looking for more regular members, but occasional visitors are always welcome. We meet in members’ homes on the first Wednesday of each month at 2.30 pm. Contact Heather Haslett for further details (contact details can be found in 'Info' magazine).
