Off to the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge for the London Lyceum’s of Greek Women annual Christmas lunch, last Sunday the 16th of December. Once again the event attracted a great number of guests mostly from the London Greek Shipping Fraternity and thanks to Lyceum’s president Pighi N. Skinitis, supported by the Lyceum ladies team, this unique charity, it was an excellent touching event.
Live music by folk supremo George Michalisles and folklore Greek dances from Minor Asia – the “kalanta” (carols) too, where from Minor Asia traditional ones, a great work done here from Anita Williams.
Nice food and wine, excellent catering service by the waiters and waitresses of the RTYC, interesting raffle prizes for all tastes and once again the excellent performance by a team of Lyceum dancers made it once again a memorable day.
Present the new Greek Ambassador in the court of St. James, Mr. Constantine Bikas and his wife Mrs. Maria Bikas, who is also the Honorary President of the Lyceum, Mrs. Aliki Paschalis, wife of the Cyprus High Commissioner Alexander Zenon, many members from the Greek Shipping Fraternity headed by centennial Tryfon Kedros, as well as guests and supporters of the Lyceum from the United Kingdom, Greece, Asia, and Asia!
The Lykion, as it is known, was founded back in the previous… century in 1979 for the purpose of preserving and disseminating Greek Culture and has successfully achieved its goals and today its existence is widely recognised, not only among the Greek Community in the United kingdom, but also within the British Society.
Worth mentioning their Programme catalogue with useful information and many adverts from individuals and A1 companies, particularly shipping ones! Worth mentioning also their 2013 Diary with excellent photographs on Birds from Greece nd Cyprus – a unique work thanks to Anastassios P. Leventis who allowed the use of his birds photos from Greece and Cyprus and The A.G. Leventis Foundation for sponsoring the publication of the Diary!
