Folk workshops hosted by the Bylina Group celebrate the diversity of rural traditions – games, songs and dances - from all different parts of Russia.
Whilst the lively and thoroughly interactive ‘workshop’ format bears little or no resemblance to the typical, sedentary classroom environment, the events are meticulously researched, with workshop leaders well-versed in the authentic ethnographic and historic material they teach.
Olesia and Eugenia see it as their mission to actively entertain and engage young people in Russian folklore and encourage future generations to continue the tradition.
The duo participate in numerous shows and festivals across the country, and recently won the Russian Song Competition in London.
The ticket is per child, additional tickets for accompanying adults are not necessary. This event, starting at 4pm, is aimed at children aged 8 and up. The event at 2pm is aimed at children aged 3-7 years old.
