Mother Language Day celebration and AGM
On Saturday, 27 February 2021 an Annual General Meeting of the Anglo-Belarusian Society will be held at 2pm online via Zoom.
The Anglo-Belarusian Society then cordially invites its members and friends to the Mother Language Day celebration with poetry readings and special guest appearances. Our annual Mother Language Day celebration will be organised with the participation of the Francis Skaryna Belarusian Library and Museum and Association of Belarusians in Great Britain.
The event was inaugurated by the late Vera Rich to mark UNESCO Mother Language Day and involves poetry reading in all languages particularly Belarusian and English.
Read your favourite poem – works of modern poets or old favourites of your choice in Belarusian, English, Scots, Catalan, Finnish etc (no need to learn by heart!). Children are very welcome to participate.
The readings will start at 3 pm on Zoom and will be followed by virtual refreshments and chat.
The suggested minimum donation for ABS members – £5, for non-members – £10
