The most important person to us Greeks, our mothers, will be celebrated this month. Mothers’ Day is coming up on Sunday 11th March this year, and to show our appreciation to the pillars of the household, our “mana” in Greek, we have teamed up with the ‘ultimate feel-good show’ (Classic FM) MAMMA MIA!, bringing you some exciting news!
MAMMA MIA! premiered in London 18 years ago on 23rd March 1999 – and it has thrilled more than 60 million people around the world, in over 440 cities.
The musical is set on one of our gorgeous Greek islands and it’s a story of love, friendship and generation gap, told through timeless ABBA smash-hits.
Sophie’s quest to discover the father she’s never known, brings her mother Donna face to face with three men from her past on a wedding day they will never forget! This feel-good uplifting comedy with the electric atmosphere, will have you singing along, feeling sweetly touched and of course, dancing in your seat-or out of it- all along. The mother-daughter relationship portrayed in the show is a strong one, that of a single mother and her only child.
The musical itself is record braking in many levels and the secret of its success is that is makes the audience see themselves on stage. They relate to the cast and plot so much whilst dancing and singing to their favourite Abba pop songs, that they always see the show more than once!
We are happy to announce a fantastic competition that will give you the opportunity to not only see MAMMA MIA! at the Novello Theatre in London, but to also dine before the show in one of our restaurants, and to top all this up by having a professional photoshoot as well!

The first price includes a pair of tickets to the show valued up to £184.50, dinner for two in either The Real Greek Covent Garden or The Real Greek St. Martin’s Lane (your choice!), valued at £75, and a Venture photoshoot valued at £245.
There will also be 3 runner-up prices of pairs of tickets to the show. Entries close 29th March 2018.
This is not all however! Through this partnership we have created a delicious prosecco and pomegranate cocktail for Mother’s Day called “The Mamma Mia”. This will be offered to all mothers visiting all of our 15 restaurants on Sunday 11th March only, when they quote “Mamma Mia Mana” to us!

We know motherhood is a full-time job and we cannot do or say enough to honour our mothers, but this is our way of saying thank you to all mothers out there. “Efharisto mana”!
