Living in Northern Cyprus as an expat is idyllic with good weather most of the year and great shopping centres with most that you would find in the European high streets. Laws and regulations take some getting used to but at the end of the day there is always something to complain about wherever you live.

Perhaps the biggest problem is language with the mother tongue being Turkish and for most of the time it’s no problem talking to people and getting what you want. We try very hard on cyprusscene and northcyprusforum the friendly forum, to spread news of life in the TRNC to a worldwide audience in English and we are slowly finding ways to share Turkish language event news so that communities here can come together to enjoy these great occasions.


Whilst not a local event, we are delighted to be able to write about the First North Cyprus Festival which will be held in the Business Design Centre in Islington, North London on Friday 5th May from 9.00am to  20.00pm and on Saturday 6th May 2017 from 9.00am to 17.00pm and entrance is free for all visitors.

This festival has been arranged by Zorlu Cezaroğlu, the director of North Cyprus UK Ltd, and through this festival it will be possible to introduce and promote not only the TRNC tourism industry but all the other sectors of the  country as well.

Among the exhibitors will be hotels and resorts, tour operators, universities, private hospitals, industrialists, and construction companies that are providing services in Northern Cyprus so this is a must event to visit.
