Trinidad and Tobago Cultural Fest
Trinidad and Tobago Cultural Fest is a month-long celebration of the country’s 50 years of independence, at the Trinidad and Tobago Cultural Village, Tricycle Theatre, Killburn, London, between 26th July and 25th August – bang on during the Games.
A regale of Trinidadian culture, music and lifestyle, this event is highly appealing for all members of the national community as well as tourists and Olympic athletes, or anyone else with a taste for the country’s unique flavour.
As a family-friendly festival, children’s workshops will be held for the little ones to get acquainted with the local culture, but there will also be grown-up entertainment brought by stars from Trinidad, such as Machel Montano, Ella Andall, orange Sky or Sheldon Blackman. Film, theatre, classical and jazz music, all interpreted the Trinidadian way are bound to draw in the crowds, especially since it’s all free of charge.
Authentic Creole cuisine could not have been missing from the programme; participants will have the opportunity to indulge in delicacies such as bake and shark, as well as sada roti and local soups, to mention but a few.
Sponsored and organised by the Trinidad and Tobago High Commission to London through its head Garvin Nichols, The T&T Cultural Fest is well promoted in diplomatic circles and among all Olympic councils, especially Brent Council.
Here and Now 365 recommends the T&T Cultural Fest as a fine addition to the already rich palette of world cultural identity surrounding the Games, completing the diverse puzzle that is British multiculturalism.
