Annual initiatives

We organise many initiatives and events during the course of the year, inspired from local and national traditions and festivities. Details of these initiatives will be published on our website. However, please do let us have your email address if you would like to keep informed, and we will include you in the mailing list for our periodic newsletter.  Similarly, if you have any ideas and suggestions for new events, do let us know!
