Sandon Hall is hosting an unusual event, Tzarist Russia: Magic and Mystery, on Wednesday,October 15th, 2014
“Tzarist Russia: Magic and Mystery” is the title of the event, taking place at the hall, about Pre-revolutionary Imperial Russia. The lecture puts the spot light on an often forgotten and less well known era of Russian history. It presents a brief flavour of Imperial Russia, and the treasures and palaces of the Tzars over a 300 year period up to 1917 when the Red revolution swept Russia.
Joyce Farnham, the event organiser, said:
“It is an unsual and intriguing subject. Many people are fascinated by Russian history, but very little is often presented about pre-revolutionary Russia. Imperial Russia is a fascinating subject and the lecture promises to be very exciting to anyone interested History. It is even more exciting to have an actual decendent of the Russian Aristocracy presenting to us here in Stafford.”
The presenter, Sherif E. Hegazy, from Stafford, whose ancestors were Russian Aristocrats before the revolution, said:
“It is a great pleasure and honour to be talking to the public about this glorious period of Russian history, and my own family’s past. I am certain that everyone will find this lecture very interesting, and at the end, will share my passion for Imperial Russia. I will be showing rare pictures and photographs of the era as well as many unknown facts about the period.”
The event starts at 7:00pm at Sandon Hall, and includes a welcome drink, a lecture, and a generous buffet. There is also a Question and Answer session after the presentation.
Lady Harrowby has kindly allowed the use of Sandon Hall, her ancestral home, which makes the perfect backdrop for a special evening.
