The biggest event in our community’s calendar, the Cypriot Wine Festival & Business Expo, is this weekend! Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June 2019, there’s only one place to be, the Lee Valley Athletics Centre which will once again host this spectacular two-day event.
This year’s headline act is the spectacular Peggy Zina!
One of the top female pop artists of the past two decades, the popular songstress will be gracing the stage at the 37th CyWineFest, performing all her greatest hits live… Ela, Sou Hrostao Akoma Ena Klama, Eime Kala, Ego Ta Spao, Vres Ena Tropo, Matono, Poli Kala Pername and so many others…expect a fabulous show.
Peggy made her recording debut in 1995 with her self-titled album. To date, she has released fourteen studio albums. In March 2010, she was ranked the 24th top-certified female artist in the nation’s phonographic era, totalling nine platinum and two gold records.
