Sutton Russian Circle

Joining the Sutton Russian Circle

For those of you searching for joining Societies, Clubs and Hobbies in Surrey you have come to the right place if you have an interest in or would like to learn more about the wonderful Russian history and culture. This year's subscription for members will remain at £35, which represents excellent value. The guest rates are £8 per evening. Please use our contact form and address your membership enquiries to our Treasurer Laura Oram.

New members are welcome to arrive on the night of a meeting with no prior arrangement, paying either £8 for that evening or £35 to become a member. It of course helps if new members and guests can arrive a little before 7pm which will give you time to chat with Laura who is always there to welcome guests and members.

  • Globalisation and Russia
