Brighton Le-Sands to be filled with colour for annual Patrino Karnavali


On Saturday, March 16, the Panachaian Philanthropical Association (PPA) will be hosting a special event to mark Apokries.

The event ‘Patrino Karnavali’ will be held for its 46th year at The Grand Roxy in Brighton-Le-Sands from 7 pm, and will feature plenty of fun and entertainment for all to enjoy.

It is inspired from the original Patrino Karnavali which has been held in Patras, Greece for the last 180 years. It takes place every year in the lead up to Kathari Deftera (Clean Monday), which marks the start of Lent.
