About us

The Hellenic Centre

The Hellenic Centre is a vibrant cultural organisation founded in 1994 as a charity, with the aims of providing a focus for the Hellenic community, promoting an awareness of Hellenic culture in the UK and nurturing the unique relationship between Britain and the Hellenic world. The Centre offers a rich programme of lectures, exhibitions, concerts, social events and Greek language courses.

The Centre's elegant building dates from the early 1900s and has been sympathetically refurbished to provide a number of meeting and exhibition rooms, the most impressive of which is the Great Hall. The location and its facilities make it also an attractive venue for outside individuals and organisations to hold their events. The Centre is off Marylebone High Street in central London and is easily accessible.

The Hellenic Centre is run by a full-time director and her administrative staff, overseen by the Trustees and their Executive Board.

Director: Agatha Kalisperas

The Hellenic Centre Easter Celebration - Iró “Straight to the Heart”

Friday 6 May, 7pm - The Hellenic Centre.

This year’s celebration features Iró who is coming to London for the first time bringing along her voice, a piano and many beloved melodies.

The awarded Greek singer and pianist will be taking us on a musical journey aiming “Straight to the heart”. Music is an element that unites people beyond borders and national considerations. Iró wishes to bring Greeks and friends of Greek culture together around classic songs of world famous composers, such as Manos Hadjidakis, Mikis Theodorakis and Mimis Plessas, songs that not only reflect but have also shaped modern Greek cultural identity. Iró will also be singing some of her own greatest hits, together with great songs of contemporary Greek artists and composers, specially selected to create the cozy atmosphere of a group of good old friends.

Tickets £18, £16 Hellenic Centre Members; price includes a glass of wine and a red egg for everyone.

Further information and bookings on 020 7487 5060 or at www.ark4art.eventbrite.com 

Organised by The Hellenic Centre and Ark4Art.
