RAHVAPIDU 2014

A very successful event held on Saturday 16th August at Catthorpe Manor which incorporated the 65th anniversary of the Estonian children's summer camp in England. The event was attended by the new Estonian Ambassador, HE Lauri Bambus. Guest artists from Estonia, Boris Lehtlaan, Tiit Saluveer and Tõnu Timm provided musical entertainment. A full report of the event will be in the next edition of Eesti Hääl, which will be available from 5th September onwards.   

The event was organised by IES ‘Tulevik’ and the Association of Estonians in Great Britain. Thanks also to the help and assistance and sponsorship from various organisations including the World Estonian Council, the Estonian Ministry of Education, the Estonian Embassy in London, Nordic Hotell Foorum, Seitsemaja Ülenurme guesthouse, and many individuals who helped to sponsor the summer camp.
