Miracle Tree festival of children's drama groups, inspired by the work of Korney Chukovsky, took place in the university town of Cambridge with the support of the Government Commission on Compatriots and Rossotrudnichestvo.

There were no time or age restrictions at the festival. All participants of the festival, both children and mentors, received prizes, certificates, and, most importantly, impressions from the performances of other creative collectives. Notably, the children received essential experience of performing in front of an audience of over 100 people. For some groups, the stage was too big after chamber performances in school classes, but for others it seemed too small, as, for example, for a group from the city of Crowley, who has been performing on the big stage for a long time.

The festival was initiated by the Cambridge Russian Academy, and attended by several creative groups form Russian schools across the UK, including Teatrik, Cambridge Russian school, Kaleidoscope collective from Crowley, as well as the students of the Northampton Russian school.
