£12

Tickets

Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

Many places in London are linked to the Russians who left their mark on the city’s history. A godfather of Queen Victoria; a diplomat whose debt spree culminated in a new Act of Parliament; a dancer who became a symbol of ballet; two inmates of Brixton prison who later became ministers in their homeland and even “Bolshevism was born in Tottenham Court Road”. Natasha Dissanayake, a BB Guide and the author of the recently published book “The Fate and Fortunes of Russians in London” (in Russian) will give a talk that will be illustrated with many pictures and rare photos.

Copies of Natasha’s book will be for sale after the talk.
