Coming Up in the UK
Andrew J Horton
Details of selected Central and East European cultural events in the UK over the next few weeks, a Polish actor's list of adultresses, a Czech composer remembered and a Romanian history of pandas.
It is, admittedly, a bit of a lean time for Central European culture in the UK. The summer festivals are dying down and the autumn cultural programmes have yet to kick into gear. However, the early indications are that it will be a good autumn, with plenty of diverse and intruiging events across the country. More details of these exciting developments will be revealed next week.
