Viennese Waltzes – The Hellenic Centre’s New Year Celebration

What better way for a New Year Celebration than a piece of sweet orange flavoured Vasilopitta – our traditional New Year’s cake – and a feeling of joy caused by the lively and uplifting tunes of Viennese Waltzes?  Our recital, a programme of well-known waltzes performed by a piano trio of talented musicians – Warren Mailley-Smith, piano; Lucy Jeal, violin; Pavlos Carvalho, cello – promises to be the happy note we all need to start 2020 and an evening of sparkle and vivacity.

Tickets £15, concessions and Hellenic Centre Members £12

Price includes live music and vasilopita. Bookings essential.
