CEFTUS 4th Anniversary Gala

We are very excited that CEFTUS will be celebrating its fourth anniversary this year. Our anniversary event will mark success of our work so far and will raise funds to carry out our future projects. Our anniversary celebrations in previous years welcome members of parliaments of UK and Turkey, London councillors, academics, journalists, business people and representatives of communities. Please watch our anniversary video from last year. This year, we will again be joined by distinguished guests from UK and Turkey’s political and business world.

Please see below details for this event:

Since 2011, we have been able to create opportunities for vibrant and enlightening analysis and discussion of issues concerning Turkey. Our guests and supporters come from across the political spectrum in both Turkey and the United Kingdom, with representatives of Turkey’s Justice and Development Party, Republican People’s Party and Peoples’ Democratic Party participating in our events. In the United Kingdom, members of the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat Parties have provided invaluable assistance to us. Please visit our ‘events’ pages.

Community Achievement Awards

As part of our anniversary celebrations, we will host CEFTUS Community Achievement Awards 2015 to celebrate the work of Turkish, Kurdish and Cypriot community members in Britain. The awards recognise achievements and contributions of our communities in several categories. Please see winners of the last year’s awards here. You may make your nomination here.


This year’s CEFTUS Anniversary Gala will begin with a drinks reception and be followed by three course meal. This is a paid event as the funds raised will go towards organisation of our future public forums and projects. CEFTUS is a not-for-profit organisation and does not receive any sponsorship or funding other than kind donations from individuals. CEFTUS team mostly consists of volunteers who work tirelessly to keep our non-partisan political platform alive.
