The Russian schemed “Old” New Year children party at Exeter Language Club

The Russian schemed “Old” New Year children party at Exeter Language Club

Exeter has launched the new educational project Exeter Language Club, aimed to support and further develop local community. 

 

Exeter Language Club had its first public event on Saturday 13th of January. Exeter Expats community enthusiasts have organised parents and children afternoon, with the children pantomime themed to the Russian New Year celebration, followed by the children disco. The Lord Mayor of Exeter Councillor Lesley Robson and Councillor Rob Hannaford have attended the opening. The event was supported by the number of local businesses and organisations, including Exeter Cathedral School, Ark Events, Viva Hair, Northwood Exeter and Exeter Specsavers. Exeter Language Club will continue offering different educational and entertaining events for the Exeter community, that are aimed to bring wider awareness of different international cultures and encourage children and adults of Exeter and Devon to learn different languages.

 

The Children pantomime was prepared by the members of the Russian section of the Exeter Language Club with the help of the Russian Language lovers from the Exeter-Yaroslavl Twinning association and the local children disco company Streetbeat.  Children of Exeter had a chance to meet the traditional Russian Christmas Festive characters Father Frost  (Дед Мороз) and Snow Maiden (Снегурочка), and had a glimpse into some Slavic folk stories about Leshiy, Kikimora and Baba Yaga. The show was in two languages – English and Russian. The non-Russian speakers were able to follow the story, and get the feel of Slavic traditions.

 

At the end of the show all children received presents from Father Frost and danced away with the Streetbeat disco for another hour. Snow machine has proven to be popular.

 

The event offered great networking opportunities for parents and children from the Expats community of Exeter and a fun Friday evening for everyone who came to the show.
