An update from the Director of the Hellenic Centre

The London Hellenic Centre
Dear Members and Friends of the Hellenic Centre
It is over one year since we had to stop our live cultural events. Like you, I am disappointed that we are still not able to resume our normal activities, especially with Easter approaching. For the second year now, we cannot celebrate our traditional Greek Easter with red eggs and lovely music in our Great Hall. However, we have planned some music at the end of April, so we can, at least, celebrate virtually!
Our online events have been a great success and I am delighted that such a large number of people have been able to attend. I thank you all for your continuous support.  Many people helped to make this possible.
I want to thank the academics from the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Patras, Kings’ College, Ioannina and other institutions for enriching our cultural programme with their excellent series of lectures. If you have missed them, they are all available on our website. Special thanks also to the musicians for the joy they gave us with their concerts and to the artists for their beautiful exhibitions.  
We have all enjoyed what at first was the excitement of novelty – online events, zoom meetings etc. which have now become part of our new normal. However, I think we are all ready to go back to real socialising again and to our live events. My hope is that the vaccination programme in the country is successful and we will be able to welcome you all at our Centre in the very near future.
My warm wishes to you and to your families for the Western Easter on 4th April and the Greek Easter on 2th May.
