Moscow celebrates British culture at «Thank you, Leto» festival

Moscow citizens had an exciting opportunity to visit a bit of Britain, while not moving from Moscow.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


The British Embassy took part in the Festival of British Culture “Thank you, Leto”. For two days Sokolniki Park turned into a comfortable corner of the United Kingdom where everything was saturated with the atmosphere of British culture and traditions.

Visitors could enjoy the great entertainment programme that included a number of traditional British sport games, competitions and master-classes.

Especially for guests who would like to test their knowledge of Britain, the Embassy organised a crossword competition “What do you know about Great Britain?” Everyone who wants to take part in the competition should solve the crossword, find a code word and send it to our official Facebook page (UKinRussia).

On 27 August we will choose three winners who will get British style prizes. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated about our events and activities.
