the last two Festivals we have not had to increase our fees. Unfortunately due
to rising costs, the Greek Community Centre has had to increase their
prices. For us to continue to put on the
Festival, we have had to increase our fees accordingly. We hope you will
continue to support us and join us for a great fun filled weekend.
We look forward to seeing you all in May, 2019
