Fourth Anniversary of Sputnik Association in East London

The organisers of this group performed Russian dances at the Stratford and West Ham festival last month.

They hold a Russian cultural event each October to celebrate the lunch of the first ever spaceship "Sputnik".  This is an important day still in Russia.

This year it is being held in Shoreditch, East London. 

The Russian Community in London is far more settled and organised than I thought.  In Newham there are at least two Russian language and culture classes each Saturday.

Everyone is welcome to this free community event.  Check out their website for further details.
