Hungarian Family Group


We have 13 working groups in total, providing playgroups, nursery sessions and classes for children and adults at different levels.


Most of these classes teach Hungarian as a minority language for pupils who are settled in this country but wish to maintain their Hungarian heritage or give opportunities to non-Hungarian members to develop an understanding of the Hungarian language and culture.


Other classes complement mainstream education by teaching children music, dance and drama.


We also organise social events at different venues: a Spring Festival with fancy dress in February, a concert or theatre workshop in June, a Sports Day in September, and a Christmas party in December.
