This is a Fund Raising Concert for St John the Evangelist Church, Deryneia.
Do try to come along, enjoy some great singing, have fun picnicking with friends in this lovely venue looking out to sea and don't forget to bring a cushion..

Unfortunately Georgina won't be able to sing with Jess, but we do have the wonderful Oroklini choir joining her instead, and still waiting to hear whether there is another lady able to do so. More info when it becomes available!
Thank you for all your information about this concert, looking forward to it very much. Are the tickets ready yet? Is this being held where the Gatehouse Singers held their concerts in Ayia Thekla? will be in contact again soon.Kapa.
Update on Jess.
Jess was part of a group who sang at the MOBO awards, and were nominated for one themselves as well as winning a Gospel Music award. Since then she has been a TV and Radio presenter before returning to professional singing. Jess will be singing a mix of modern and classic pop and music from the musicals. The Oroklini choir and George Zoumenis are both well known in this area to.
Bring your picnic and drinks and sing along to those songs you know, hum those you don,t. ALL WELCOME.
Jess & Friends will now have its own Ice Cream man! Panicos, who normally attends the Ayia Thekla market phoned today to offer his services for the night, and has promised us a gift from his profits! How lovely is that. Even more reason to come and enjoy a lovely evening out, if you ask me.
Taff, Panicos is a lovely guy, he has been our regular Ice Cream man in Ayia Thekla since we moved in 9.5 years ago. A really kind guy plus he has the yummyist ice cream. Thank you Panicos for offering to support the concert.
Prizes for the raffle at the Jess & Friends event, due
to happen on Thursday this coming week include vouchers from Kennedy Bar, Kokkos Bar, Cyprus Diving Centre, a filled picnic basket, and various other delightful suprises. The ticket number prize will be a Mojito's voucher - also well worth winning, and worth more than the cost of the ticket! Maybe it will be you who wins! You won't know if you don't come and include your ticket number in the draw! ALL WELCOME
