Russian Cultural Club

Open to everyone

Anyone may join in. The "Club" is an open group and all are welcome. To keep things simple, there is no membership fee, and no other formalities, other than a small entrance fee to cover costs. However, you may be included on our email distribution list if you care to provide an email address.

Please come along and enjoy one of our talks. The group meets once a month on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 2:00 pm. Meetings are conducted in English, and are held at the Downley Community Centre, School Close, High Wycombe, HP
13 5TR.  More location details and maps.


Future meetings:  We would like to hear your thoughts and ideas for future activities. Tell us what you like, and don't like, and perhaps offer your experiences or expertise. Your input is an important part of our work to draw up a programme for the year ahead.

15th February -  Stone Carvers of the Ural Mountains

The practice of creating coloured ornaments by carving and fixing together pieces of coloured rocks and minerals, has been carried out in the Urals, since the 18th century, when the mining of a large range of minerals first began.

This talk will cover the practice of Stone Carving from the early years to the present day. Samples of some of the various rocks and minerals will be on display. 
You will learn of one famous Stone Carver, and find out about museums where such ornaments can be seen.
