Old Hilarians Carnival Fete Celebrates 20 Years In 2016
The Old Hilarians’ All-Inclusive Carnival Fete (2016 edition) will take place on Saturday January 9th 2016, at the School’s compound on Abercromby Street in Port of Spain from 5 pm to midnight.
Twenty years ago, The Old Hilarians’ Association, the alumnae association of the Bishop Anstey High School, hosted the inaugural All-Inclusive Carnival Fete asits contribution to the fundraising drive that was focused on the 75th Anniversary of the School. At that time, the school’s buildings were in a dilapidated condition and as a Denominational Government- Assisted school, in 1995,repair and restorative works were mostly self-funded.
Twenty years later, the Old Hilarians’ All-Inclusive Carnival Fete is now a must-attend event on the Trinidad Carnival calendar. It has earned its reputation as one of the premier all-inclusives on the Carnival social calendar, and the planning committee works hard to keep that reputation intact.
The Fete is renowned for its premier entertainment and its wide array of premium food and beverage offerings. Patrons are extremely loyal, and many have attended each fete from its inception in 1995! Some parents have passed the baton on to their children, making sure that they too became loyal patrons of the “Bishops Fete”.
The Fete has become, and remains, the principal fundraiser for the School. Over the years, proceeds from this event have assisted with funding capital-intensive projects at the School, ensuring that the education exprience continues to be one that current and former students of the school all know and love.
Tickets cost $900 and are available NOW from committee members
