Stramash in the Park

Some 450 people attended the 2007 summer Stramash that took place on an August Saturday in brilliant sunshine in Krasnopresnenskiy Park. As usual there was a Scottish cover band, Night Shift, which kept people dancing all afternoon. There were special games and entertainments for children and of course plenty of food and drink for all the family. Catering was provided by Yuri Navarro, who has recently opened his own restaurant, Navarro’s, close by.
This was the fifth Stramash and is the traditional start of St Andrew’s Society season. We can look forward to the St Andrews Ball (1 December) and the Burns Supper (26 January, to be confirmed). Other upcoming British social events to mark your calendar’s for are the second annual Moscow Village Fête in the grounds of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church on Saturday, 8 September from 14.00 to 17.00 and the Trafalgar Ball of the British Business Club which will be held this year on 20 October in the Marriott Grand Hotel. This is one of the most well attended international balls in the expat calendar and a great networking event.
