Russian London (2)
A family focused bustling bazaar of all things Russian, featuring music, food, crafts and a colourful children’s marquee will fill Trafalgar Square in the culmination of London’s Maslenitsa Festival, celebrating the arrival of Spring. The London event, supported by Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, is the largest celebration of Russian culture, art, music and food anywhere outside Russia.
