The representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London hosted a literary and musical evening dedicated to the Stray Dog café, a legend of Russia’s artistic life of the early 20th century.

The literary and artistic cabaret Stray Dog was opened on the new years eve of the year 1912 in St. Petersburg and immediately became a favorite meeting place for local poets, artists, musicians, and near-art bohemians. Despite the fact that the art basement Stray Dog did not last long (the cafe was closed in 1915), it has become one of the hubs of the cultural life of the Silver Age.

The guests of the evening were transported to New Year's Eve of 1912 and met with their favorite poets: Georgy Ivanov, Osip Mandelstam, Anna Akhmatova, Sergey Gorodetsky, Igor Severyanin and other literary figures performed by Russian-speaking actors.
