Holders gala acts thrill crowd
Pageantry, tributes and entertainment marked the nine days of the just-concluded Virgin Atlantic Holders Season 2014 annual festivities.
The gala night, which climaxed the festival last Saturday, was joyous and energetic. It featured the brilliant Australian singer, actress and dancer Caroline O’Connor; the singing sextet the Magnets with sweet harmonies and humour, and Andy Frost, who had his own time in the limelight, thrilling the crowd with his mouth movements.
Among the dignitaries and VIPs in the audience were Minister of Social Care Steve Blackett and his wife Eleanor; United States Ambassador to Barbados Larry Palmer and Mrs Palmer, and several corporate leaders and celebrities from the world of entertainment, along with key members of the Barbados Tourism Authority.
Producer Wendy Kidd thanked all those who attended or contributed.
“Holders Season has now been running for over two decades; that’s amazing. In that time, we have had many, many truly special evenings and hope that the 2014 season was as special,” she said.
