Pushkin HouseNamed after the famous nineteenth century Russian author and poet, Pushkin House is a place where Russian literature, art, film, music, theatre and dance, as well as history, philosophy and politics thrives. Opened in November 2006, after the original Russian cultural centre set up in the 1950s on Ladbroke Grove shut down, Pushkin House works with distinguished cultural organisations in Russia. Regular events are designed to encourage discussion and interaction include lectures and talks, seminars, conferences, exhibitions, films, concerts and readings. The house in Bloomsbury also contains its own reference library dedicated to Russian culture where you can read up on everything from theatre and ballet to the history of the Soviet Union or catch up with the daily newspapers.
