Plates smashing

   “Costas the Greek” kindly informs prospect Clients that plates specifically made for “smashing” during Greek dances are very difficult to be sourced in UK. Smashing normal plates entails a considerable risk for the one who does it and for the others around him/her. “Costas the Greek” cannot and will not enter into this and, under any circumstances, cannot be held liable in case of an accident caused by plates smashing done by members of the audience…. not to mention that Costas himself wishes to return home preferably in one piece!!!

And finally…

   “Costas the Greek” will appreciate your kind offer of refreshments and some light food (where there is a long travelling involved to reach your venue and back) prior to the start of the function and/or during the breaks.
