The pouring of libation will open this magical evening.

This years event will be catered by Chef Wayne and Chef Kareema. These two brilliant chefs will showcase their Jamaican and Trinidadian heritage by bridging together a powerful and flavourful expression of Caribbean Fusion.

No celebration is complete without African music. This year we will be welcoming the Ubuntu Drumming Team and Dance Company, in addition to a DJ.
