Cambridge University Russian Society

Cambridge University Russian Society was founded in 2001 to bring together the people from the Russian Federation, the former Soviet republics and anyone else interested in the Russian culture and language. Among our honourary members are a famous journalist Leonid Parfyonov, a Russian rock legend Boris Grebenschikov, famous writer Dmitry Bykov, rock musicians Leva and Shura B2, and the former Russian Ambassador to the UK His Excellency Yuri Fedotov.

Our society aims to provide an informal social network for those with connections to or interest in Russia. We organise a variety of events throughout the year including conversational evenings, film nights, concerts, talks, lectures and discussions, and, of course, parties and friendly get-togethers!
