A Taste of Greece

Artist John Craxton loved life in Greece: the food, the music and the warm, luminous Mediterranean landscapes. Come and experience his take on Greece with a final celebration and personal tours of the exhibition A world of private mystery: John Craxton, RA (1922-2009) before it closes on 21 April.

With food, drink and mezzedes in our own Greek courtyard, live Mediterranean music, and Craxton’s own dazzling Greek paintings upstairs, enjoy a taste of Greece here in Cambridge.


Live acoustic set - Daphna Sadeh
Daphna Sadeh on the Double Bass and Mark Smulian on the Oud present a rich tapestry of Mediterranean music, laced with Middle Eastern traditions and traditional tunes. With original compositions and arrangements.
Hear a compilation of her music here:
