Bridge in Corfu with Bernard Magee

Come and play bridge in the magical Greek island that inspired ITV's hit drama The Durrells. Based at the five-star Corfu Holiday Palace, there will also be plenty of time to relax by the pool or on the hotel's private beach, to explore Corfu at your own pace or join locally-arranged optional excursions.

Hosted by Bernard Magee, this event will have a full bridge programme and encompass two bridge seminars followed by the opportunity to play set hands with the assistance of the experienced team. There will be a range of bridge sessions played in a friendly atmosphere.

Singles: There is a sole occupancy supplement of £36 per room per night. If you are a single bridge player, please do not worry about being on your own. We will always be able to find you a partner and you can always have a game. As well as there being other singles in the same situation as yourself, there is the Mr Bridge team who will be happy to partner you if required.
