Cyprus Wine Festival 2019

This year marked the 37th annual Cyprus Wine Festival held at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre in Enfield, and the Famagusta Association was there ready to tell everyone about our association and all the exciting things we are involved in.

We met thousands of cypriots and friends of cypriots and were able to showcase a beautiful array of photos, live video slideshows, books and resources on our beloved Famagusta.

We also had the opportunity to meet key people in the Cypriot community, who were happy to hear about what our association has been working on, some including the Cypriot High Commissioner Euripides Evriviades and Costas Kadis the Minister of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment to Cyprus.


For those of you who couldn’t make it, and were not able to hear about the ongoing petition we have regarding the Right to Vote in any Cyprus Settlement Referendum for those living in exile or in Diaspora, please do feel free to go online and sign our online version of the petition at: http://chng.it/XXrhzCZL

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone, and look forward to seeing more people at our upcoming events!

Right to Vote In Cyprus Settlement Referendum

We respectfully ask the Government of Cyprus to extend the Right to Vote in any future Cyprus Settlement Referendum to the refugees who live in exile and all the Cypriots in Diaspora who have a Cyprus Identity Card.

Many of our friends and family who attended the Cyprus Wine Festival on the 1st and 2nd June 2019, will have seen that The Famagusta Association of Great Britain had copies of a referendum affecting many of us living in exile or in Diaspora. If any of you missed the chance to leave your signature, then please feel free to share this with your family and friends:
