On the night, guests put their trivia knowledge to the test in a variety of categories in a fun filled atmosphere, whilst enjoying Pontian hospitality and traditional dancing.

Happy faces.

An important part of Panagia Soumela’s mission on the night was to engage and establish effective school community partnerships with the local primary and secondary schools.
