the new Pushkin House

25th January 2006

Dear all,
There is a picture of the new Pushkin House in the attachment.
Anna

The Board of Trustees of Pushkin House Trust is pleased to announce that the Trust has acquired 5A Bloomsbury Square, London WC1 as its new home. Pushkin House, a Russian cultural centre set up in the 1950s, was located in Ladbroke Grove until last year.

The new home of Pushkin House is a listed Grade 2* building which dates back to the 18th century and was the birthplace and home of the young Disraeli. It occupies a prominent corner position with attractive views over Bloomsbury Square and is conveniently situated close to the British Museum and the University of London, with easy access to Holborn, Russell Square and Tottenham Court Road Underground Stations.

The building requires some renovation and adaptation. Work will start within the next few weeks, and should be finished in the course of this year.

The Trustees aim to create a vibrant centre of Russian culture, to serve both Russian and British communities in London, and indeed all who are interested in any aspect of Russian culture. The Trust will organise its own programmes and will actively welcome projects by other organisations which share our aims.
