Kupalle (Midsummer) celebration 2019

Tue, 06/18/2019 - 05:22

The Anglo-Belarusian Society invites its members and friends to the traditional Kupalle (Midsummer) celebration in the garden of the Belarusian House, 52 Penn Road, London N7 9RE

Programme:

  • 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
  • With a guest appearance and performance from the well-known musician and singer Zmicier Vajciushkevich. We are very lucky this year to have Zmicier back with us in London for Kupalle!

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.
