Children's Day @ ICR London 4 June 2011, 1pm
You are invited to celebrate with us Children's Day and the wonderful world of childhood. Timeland is a puppet animation show which reminds us that every moment in life can be a magic one.
Tim is a boy who is bored to be a child and wants to grow up quickly. He embarks on a journey that will show him that growing up is not the simplest thing in life and sometimes not even the most desirable one. Becoming a prisoner in a world of distant future, Tim will soon learn to cherish every moment in life as friendship and joy make every age a beautiful one.
This event is organized by the Romanian Cultural Institute in London and is part of the At Home in Belgrave Square series. The programme, under the patronage of HE Dr. Ion Jinga, the Ambassador of Romania, aims to support and develop the initiatives of the Romanian community in Great Britain. The events are intended to preserving Romanian cultural and linguistic identity. Come At home in Belgrave Square!
