The Maslenitsa Russian Festival
Maslenitsa is the Russian Sun Festival - a celebration of the end of winter chills and the start of Spring, of warmth, of hope, of growth. Not surprisingly, it is a particularly big deal in Russia!
Maslenitsa is traditionally a family event, and its London cousin will be no different, with a children's marquee programme featuring exclusive performances, a presentation of Maslenitsa traditions, with audience interaction, performances of traditional songs by children's groups and plenty of competitions, games and fun.
No celebration would be complete without music and the richness and diversity of Russia's musical heritage will laid out in a buzzing programme, direct from Russia of dance, theatre and folk, pop and jazz music.
Date: Monday 12 to Sunday 18 February 2018
Cost: Only some events are £0
Location: Greater London, London
