Rare Russian paintings are to go on display in St Annes during the town’s Arts and Music Festival starting this weekend.

The Soviet Realism artworks are from the collection of cafe-bar proprietor Elena Radzivilova, who hails originally from Russia and previously worked in a Moscow art gallery.

After later living in Amsterdam, Elena, a keen artist herself, moved to England to join daughter Polly and the pair now run the Silantro cafe-bar in Wood Street, where the Soviet paintings will go on display during the week-long festival beginning on Saturday.
