Go Greek at The Brunswick!

19 June, 2019

The Brunswick Shopping Centre, opposite Russell Square tube station, is excited to announce that they will be paying tribute to Christos Lazari with a night of TOTALLY FREE Greek food, drink, dance and live entertainment, at their annual ‘Go Greek’ event.

The event will take place from 6pm to 10pm on Thursday 20th June and will see the centre come alive with a hive of themed activity.

They’ll be joined by the unique and incredibly popular Tsahouridis Brothers, who will be headlining the night and performing live with their incredible band, alongside a full programme of talented artists taking to the stage throughout the night.

London’s most popular and fun-packed party band ‘Diastello’ will be back to get those feet jumping and plates smashing with their energetic violin, pithkiavlin and saxophone melodies and fusion of traditional and contemporary beats.

The Elite Greek Dancers and Figoura School of Greek Dance will bring a vibrant, colourful and youthful burst to the night’s entertainment, promising spectacular, high-energy performances to entertain guests through the night, with a re-enactment of a Greek village wedding and all the customs that go with it.

A fabulous line-up of solo performers including the beautiful Greek goddess Ageliki Darra and X Factor finalist Monica Michael with her amazing voice, as well as Marios Lazari and Paul Doukas – both on the bouzouki, will keep those Greek beats pumping into the night.

Themis The Greek Blues Man fuses Greek blues with his velvet voice and harmonica while Diva Mary Pearce will blow your socks off with her impactful vocals. Costas Rialas will have visitors transfixed with his phenomenal bouzouki skills, while event organiser John Themis steps up to the mic with his guitar.

Further entertainment comes from George Karageorgis who has just celebrated his 90th Birthday and will demonstrate the renowned ‘glasses on your head dance’, with Leonidas wowing guests with his jaws of steel as he takes to the floor to showcase his ‘table in the mouth with a chair on top’ showpiece, whilst smashing plates.

There will also be the opportunity for customers to enjoy a cuddle with ‘Kyriako’ the donkey and tuck into a delicious spread of traditional Greek cuisine – all catered by Apollo Restaurant and Wilton Patisserie, while stocks last.

It’s a great opportunity to join The Brunswick for an epic night of high energy Mediterranean fun – all TOTALLY FREE!

David Plumb, Centre Manager at The Brunswick says, “After the success and popularity of last years’ event, we can’t wait to do it all again. The free food and incredible live entertainment are sure to draw in the crowds and create an amazing summer party atmosphere, right in the heart of Bloomsbury!”

John Themis, Events and Marketing Manager for the Brunswick says, “I have LOVED ‘Go Greek’ at The Brunswick from the very first event. It’s such a vibrant, authentic event that really encapsulates all things Greek and we can’t wait to welcome all our entertainers, caterers and guests to this totally Greektastic night!”
