DANCE troupes and singers are heading to the heart of Bloomsbury next week.
The Lazari family, owners of the Brunswick Centre, near Russell Square tube station, are turning into hosts for the evening, putting on a free Greek festival next Thursday. John Themis, who writes and produces music for Boy George, is organising the event with the owners.
“The Lazari family took over the centre a couple of years ago and have been trying to make it better,” he said. “We want to make it a place where people can have a day out. We are trying to increase the footfall and increase awareness of the space.”
The festival next Thursday (June 21), from 6pm to 10pm, will feature traditional Greek dance performances by Figoura School of Dance and the Elite Greek Dancers, as well as live music from Greek six-piece band Diastello.
