You are warmly invited to the Annual Rustaveli Day 2019 on 11 November 2019 at 6.30pm at the Royal Asiatic Society.
H.E. Ambassador Tamar Beruchashvili will do an introductory talk to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Marjorie Scott Wardrop, a pioneering scholar and translator of Georgian (celebrated by UNESCO in 2019). This year we continue with the Anglo-Georgian Connection Series and discover the fascinating stories of:
- Princess Tamara Imeretinsky, a Bagrationi of Imereti in exile; and
- Michael Aramyants, a prominent Tbilisian industrialist & philanthropist
The illustrated talks will be given by Princess Tamara’s daughter Nino Strachey and M. Aramyants’ g-grandson Alec D’Janoeff. Alec will be joined by his daughter, the singer-songwriter Katya, who has recently returned from living in Tbilisi and will talk about her experiences of discovering her roots and travelling in the Caucasus.
The event will take place on 11 November at 18:30 at The Royal Asiatic Society 14 Stephenson Way, London, NW1 2HD
