By November 6, 2023No Comments


Members of the VTIS Association Great Britain are inviting us to join for Martinovanje in Cambridge.

Together we will celebrate the autumn harvest and the time when the new wine can first be drunk. The festivity is named after St Martin, a 4th century Bishop of Tours in France who had Hungarian roots. In Slovenia every seventh inhabitant cultivates vines, and the practice is becoming more common now in Britain.

Members of the British-Slovene Society are welcome to join the celebration in Stow cum Quy, Main St, Stow cum Quy, Cambridge CB25 9AB. We will be cooking and eating and drinking.

The event is free, food will be provided as well as some drinks but it is appreciated if you bring some Slovene goodies. If you wish extra drinks, they can be purchased at the mini village shop 50m away.

Reserve your place through Eventbrite…/vtis-velika-britanija…(obligatory)
From the railway station Cambridge North  take a taxi (around £15). Alternatively take a bus (, or drive to the address above.
The event is supported by the Slovenian Government Office for Slovenians Abroad and the partners of VTIS.
