Ignite your inner babushka!
Come and celebrate Radio Gagarin style – with our comradeship of live music, digital DJ prowess, performance art, cinema, drama, poetry, puppetry, poverty, posterity, sailors, mutineers, heart throbs, Laika, Belka, Strelka and vodka!
This time around the sputnik is being steered by the ladies. Launching with a screening of classic Soviet moving image followed by the fearless art activists The Gagarin Grandaughters who will be cooking up some edible and edifying performance art.
Manning the ship will be the sweet-voiced Elena Dana, who will delight your ears with an array of feisty gypsy romances and glorious jazz melodies. All interlaced with the intoxicating tunes of DJ Mourrka – London's only Russian gangster cat DJ! And hosted by the renowned intergalactic feminist, Lemez Lovas.
Dress code (encouraged): notable Soviet women.
