About Corfu

Corfu, an island off Greece’s northwest coast in the Ionian Sea, is defined by rugged mountains and a resort-studded shoreline. Its cultural heritage reflects years spent under Venetian, French and British rule before it was united with Greece in 1864. Corfu Town, flanked by two imposing Venetian fortresses, features winding medieval lanes, a French-style arcade and the grand Palace of St Michael and St George.


Corfu Bridge

Hosted by Bernard Magee, this event will have a full bridge programme and encompass two bridge seminars followed by the opportunity to play set hands with the assistance of the experienced team. There will be a
range of bridge sessions played in a friendly atmosphere.

If you are a single bridge player, please do not worry about being on your own. We will always be able to find you a partner and you can always have a game. As well as there being other singles in the same situation as yourself, there is the Mr Bridge team who will be happy to partner you if required.
