For Release Upon Receipt - January 5, 2011
After a sell-out year in 2010, the UWI FETE, the original all-inclusive, celebrates 21 years, on 6 February, 2011 when the UWI family will journey from China, the 2010 theme, to India. At UWI Fete 2011, guests will be welcomed to Bollywood. UWI Fete promises that “you can't help but be entranced by Bollywood’s aromas, its sounds and its sights. It's tasty, rhythmical and pulsating.”
Set on the lush UWI Principal’s Grounds in St Augustine, you can find a cool spot under a mango tree and take it easy all day if you like. Or you can be up front and centre stage dancing to the music of four top bands presented on two stages. Whichever way you prefer, you can be assured of a great premium all inclusive experience. The day always starts with an array of fine foods. UWI Fete Bollywood will serve its guests authentic and local Indian food and gourmet delights with Arabic, Latino and Caribbean influences and origins.
UWI Fete Bollywood’s famous fine foods and exotic drinks serve as the appetizer to the main course. Come experience a riveting party in a lush setting where nature is also a guest. Bollywood will feature some of the world’s Soca and Chutney megastars who always make you dance. Be captivated by Ravi B and Karma or be charmed by Raymond Ramnarine and his band Dil-E-Nadan. In 2011, Kes the Band returns to UWI after a phenomenal year travelling the globe. Roy Cape All Stars, a UWI Fete essential ingredient, completes the star line up with their brand of world music that touches the soul and excites the heart.
In 1991, through the initiative of then Campus Principal, Professor George Maxwell Richards, the first UWI Fete was launched. It quickly became one of the cornerstones of the UWI Development and Endowment Fund. Over the past 21 years more than 3000 bursaries have been awarded by the Fund. In 2010, to celebrate 20 years of awarding bursaries principally earned through the UWI Fete over the years, the Fund distributed 200 bursaries valued at one million dollars.
UWI Fete Bollywood can only be accessed on Sunday 6 February, 2011. The UWI family is invited to come discover and share your passion for great food, exotic drinks and the best soca and chutney music on the planet. Limited tickets are available at $750 each until January 7, 2011. Call 662-2002, extension 2326 (Alana) or 622-2762 (Tanya) and pick up your tickets to Bollywood.
