Enjoy a fun, free family day out at the Maslenitsa Russian folk festival in Trafalgar Square on March 2.
Marking the end of winter, Maslenitsa combines a Russian Orthodox religious celebration with an older pagan festival welcoming the arrival of spring.
The festival normally features dance and theatre performances, music, family entertainment, and stalls selling Russian handicrafts and authentic Russian food such as blini (pancakes), beef stroganoff and borscht (beetroot soup).
