UWI Fete 2011 visits Bollywood
After a sell-out year in 2010, the UWI Fete, the original all-inclusive, celebrates 21 years on February 6, when the UWI family will journey to India. Guests will be welcomed to Bollywood. Set on the lush UWI Principal’s grounds in St Augustine, guests can find a cool spot under a mango tree and take it easy all day, or they can find themselves up front and centre stage dancing to the music of four top bands presented on two stages. Whichever way, patrons 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, as well as exotic drinks.
Prepare to be captivated by Ravi B and Karma, or be charmed by Raymond Ramnarine and his band Dil-E-Nadan. Kes the Band will be there, along with Roy Cape All Stars, a UWI Fete essential ingredient.
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 $1 million dollars.
