Exhibition moves from London to Maldon
Women’s ancient Belarusian costumes from the late 19th-early 20th century and national rushniks are now on show in the town of Maldon in Essex.
The opening ceremony was attended by the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to the UK, H.E. Mr. Alexander Mikhnevich, alongside local councillors and representatives of political and business circles, and cultural and art figures from the UK.
At present, Belarus and Britain are negotiating the establishment of twin town relations between Brest and Maldon. In April and May, the ancient Belarusian costumes and rushniks will continue touring English and Welsh towns.
Initially, the exhibition opened in London, where it aroused wide interest, including among politicians, entrepreneurs and foreign diplomats. The British were viewing the ancient costumes for the first time. Of course, they are a bright reflection of Belarusian culture.
