The beauty, strength and fierceness of Queen Boadicea, the regal appearance of Queen Narcisse and a tribute to the distinguished Barbadian men and women will be seen when Bajan Revellers takes to the streets of London in August this year.
“Our presentation for Notting Hill Carnival 2013 is called Tribal Fantasy which will be showcased by three colorful sections: Royale Narcisse; Bodacious Warriors; and The Tribe of Poseidon which has a male section.
“The costumes of Tribal Fantasy were exclusively conceptualised by successful designer Rohan Husbands – Enigma Vibes with 12 years of experience in fashion design creating fabulously distinctive pieces,” said Chairman of the Band, Philip Freeman.
Children’s Day is August 25 and the adults will take to the streets the next day, Monday 26.
Bajan Revellers was established in London to enable participation in Notting Hill Carnival in 2006 as part of Barbados’ 40th year of Independence.
Their “most very successful appearance was in 2010 with over 100 participants taking part under the patronage of the Barbados High Commisson and the Barbados Tourism Authority where the Band took third place in the Modern Dance Category.
“Our aim is to build on this achievement and to strengthen the Bajan Revellers brand at Europe’s largest street festival. Our aspiration is to engage with the second and third generations of the Caribbean Diaspora and others communities to continuously develop the cultural and artistic elements of the Bajan Revellers carnival experience.
“We are a culturally diverse all inclusive band who welcome all interested parties to participate in our year long activities. We believe in retaining a Caribbean feel to our events and are eager to share the flamboyant experience of the taste and culture of the Caribbean Diaspora with you,” the band said in their information booklet.
Apart from the costume, the packages include breakfast, lunch, all inclusive drinks. a goodie bag, security and music by the Group’s resident Djs.
