We’re delighted to announce that on 10 October 2021 we are repeating this intriguingly titled local history walk which was first presented during Ventnor Fringe in July this year, and fully sold out then. The walk follows in the footsteps of the Russian political radicals, writers and poets who visited Ventnor in the 1850s and 1860s, and offers the chance to learn something about town as it was then.
The walk is led by Stephan Roman, author of the recently published book ‘Isle and Empires’ which explores the close connections between the Isle of Wight and Romanov Russia.
There are 15 places on the walk; for more information on the walk and how to book a place please click here. Ventnor – cradle of the Russian Revolution
