Next Year it will be a bigger, better, sweeter, more successful festival, coming off this year’s Crop Over achievements.
Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley and chief executive officer of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF), Cranston Browne, made the predictions during a media luncheon held at Divi Southwinds Beach Resort yesterday.
The luncheon was to thank the local media for its contribution to the success of Crop Over and to give an update on the festival and some new initiatives.
Browne said the Crop Over season, from all accounts, was very successful and it could not have been without support of all the partners and the local media was one partner that was strategic in spreading the message internationally.
“Overall, it was a very good season, from the Cavalcades to Junior Monarch to Grand Kadooment . . . . Most, if not all, of the stories were very positive,” he said.
