Italian, Spanish and English Cultural Events in Cambridge and London
What’s on at La Dante – July 2018
NEW STUDENTS ARE WELCOME!
on Friday 6th July 2018, 5.30 pm @ La Dante
One of the things that make us Italian and Spanish people really homesick when we are abroad is that we cannot go for aperitivo or tapas. So we are having both at La Dante! There will be Italian and Spanish finger food, prosecco, sangria, and good company. Can you think of anything better?
Our staff will put their culinary abilities to the test, and it will be a great opportunity to get to know them and to practice Italian and Spanish – don’t miss it! Please book it in advance (before Wednesday 30th June)!
