Old Hilarians' Carnival Fete - All Grown Up in 2014!
The Old Hilarians’ All-Inclusive Carnival Fete is All Grown Up this year. It’s been 18 years since the Bishops Girls started the first all-inclusive fundraising fete to be hosted by a secondary school. Over the years, we’ve grown from strength to strength, and 2014 promises to be the best yet!
The fete takes place on Saturday, February 1st, 2014, at the School grounds on Abercromby Street in Port of Spain from 5 pm to midnight.
The Old Hilarians’ Fete has consistently earned its reputation as one of the premier all-inclusives on the Carnival social calendar. The electricity and excitement one feels as soon as one enters the venue are palpable. The fierce loyalty of our patrons is a true testament to the Bacchanalian experience we offer – mountains of sumptuous food, flowing premium drinks, and top-tier performances that have all come to mark the Old Hilarians’ Fete experience.
In 2014 the Fete will feature 4 bands in the house! Patrons will enjoy the music of the Asylum Vikings, with Fay-Ann and Soul Train Award winner Bunji Garlin, Dil E Nadan, Roy Cape All Stars, and the Queen of Bacchanal, Destra with the new band Bakanal! As always, the Fete will feature premium bars (inclusive of wine and cocktail bars) and a wide array of food for all palates. This year we also continue to have something special for the guys that’s ‘good for the back!’
Widely known as one of the ‘must attend’ events for the Carnival season, the Fete is the principal fundraiser for Bishop Anstey High School in Port of Spain. Over the years, proceeds from this event have assisted with funding capital-intensive projects such as the construction of 2 new classroom blocks, the repainting of the First Form building, the repairing of the school toilets, the enclosing and refurbishment of the school hall, and the landscaping of the beautiful grounds that we have all come to know and love.
Tickets cost $800 and are available from committee members Tonya (344-2334); Jeniece (791-8633); Debbie (681-2531); and Wanda (478-0035).
