Continuing the tradition: Russian Old New Year 2016

This year Challenge Group continued the tradition of bringing Russian Old New Year to London.

It was great to see our friends and partners from the UK enjoying themselves at the party filled with traditional Russian food, drinks and Russian music.

This year we also decided to hold a quiz, which ended up in quite a few laughs and guests winning Russian dolls as well as a traditional Russian fur hat as the main prize for the evening.

Old New Year is still a popular holiday in Russia, and is celebrated on the night from 13th to 14th of January. According to the Julian calendar, which was used in Russia before 1919, this was the night of the actual New Year.

The event took place on 13th January in La Tasca, Leadenhall market, London.
