Feeling the Caribbean Flavour in London's West End
Thursday 08 June, 2017
The temperamental British weather is a far cry from the clear blue skies of Barbados. Nevertheless, the Taste of Barbados Festival aimed to bring a small piece of the island’s culture and heritage to London’s West End.
Taking place on South Molton Street, the 3 day extravaganza celebrates Bajan culture, cuisine, music and art. World-class chefs cooked up a storm serving up mouthwatering dishes, all incorporating tantalising Bajan flavours. And the perfect accompaniment to all the food on offer? Mount Gay Rum, the oldest rum brand in the world, brought along some of their extensive selection, with a brand ambassador on hand to take attendees through the ultimate rum masterclass experience.
With all of this set against a musical backdrop of calypso, spouge, contemporary folk, jazz and reggae, visitors were well and truly immersed in all the delights of the stunning Caribbean island.
Field and Lawn was delighted to be involved with the project, installing flags throughout the street and supplying 6 individually branded tents so that the best of Barbados could be showcased in style.
