Martinovanje v Cambridgeu 11. novembra od 14h dalje

By First page

Člani lokalnega odbora društva VTIS Velika Britanija vabijo na Martinovanje v Cambridge-u!

Korenine martinovanja naj bi izhajale že iz keltskega praznika, ki se je poklonil rodovitnosti jesenskega časa na poljih in v vinogradih. Sv. Martin, škof iz francoskega Toursa z madžarskimi koreninami, se je zdel najprimernejši naslednik in zaščitnik tega pomembnega časa. Veselje, ko iz mošta nastane pravo vino, je v Sloveniji neprimerljivo s katerim koli drugim praznikom. Skoraj vsak sedmi Slovenec je namreč vinogradnik. Morda se sliši nenavadno, a tudi Velika Britanija postaja vse bolj prepoznavna vinorodna dežela!

Zato vabijo v soboto, 11. novembra 2023, od 14.00 dalje, da se jim pridružite v vaškem domu v kraju Stow cum Quy, Main St, Stow cum Quy, Cambridge CB25 9AB, kjer se bo kuhalo, jedlo in pilo.

KAKO DO STOW CUM QUY?

Here is information received from the Slovenian Embassy in London:

The ASEF Visit Slovenia scholarship program is a one-year initiative offering young individuals the opportunity for a 10-week working or research visit at a Slovenian university, company, or research institute within their field of study or expertise.
