For my TV show Vox Pop, I went with my camera crew to meet up with Delia Rushbrooke who, together with her friend Sureya Hayatler, decided to bring a different concept to North Cyprus by opening Blakes Lounge Bar & Bistro in Alsancak where people can meet for a drink and enjoy some conversation in lovely surroundings with background music based on soul and jazz and easy listening.
Delia previously ran a similar enterprise in London for many years and she is also well-known for her involvement with the Children in Need Foundation, together with her husband Laurence Floyd. She first came to North Cyprus in 1995 until 2000 and then returned again in 2004 and has been here ever since. Delia and Laurence had known each other for many years in London where they met at the Jazz bar Delia ran with her sister and they married 3 years ago in North Cyprus.
Sureya was born in England but has lived in Cyprus for the last 25 years. She and Delia have been very good friends for most of those years and Sureya has run restaurants here in Cyprus.
My interview with Delia and Sureya will be screened on Sunday 19th February at 15.00pm and it will be repeated on Tuesday 21st February at 18.30pm so do tune in to join me on my show, Vox Pop on BRT2 Television.
