Shipwrecked for Nottinghill Carnival!


The section
This is designed to be Fun mas ( as an alternative to pretty mas which isn't so popular in London)
The section is £80 all inclusive of food, drinks and snacks all day long.
We already had a small section at 'Margate carnival' last month and the section won first prize!!!
4 costumes available - 'Jungle Fever' which can either be 3/4 tights or hot shorts, 'Congo Woman' - dress, 'Congo Man' for the guys and 'Jungle Kids' for female kids age 9+ ( All pics on the website!)

The Theme for 2010
(We are running free after work drinks every friday where people can come down, register, try on costumes and eat and drink at one of London West End's hottest bars : www.barsoho.co.uk)
This year we take on a journey to Africa. With the core of our members coming from Trinidad and Tobago, a land of multiple races, we look back on the heritage that brought was to our land by the African Slaves who arrived on the ships, and worked and toiled the land until the abolition of slavery.Each year we take on a new theme and bring out the vibrance and merriment of the concept in both our All inclusive party and Float on Carnival Monday.

The summer is set to be a scorcher. As we party under the sun, imagine listening to the sounds of the steel drums, whilst you sip on some rum punch, have bite of tasty Caribbean food and dance the evening away. You get it all this Notting hill carnival 2009.

On The Issue of Price Gouging ...

I have nothing to debate on TRIBE/Bliss prices for two reasons 1. both the hubby and I are paying LESS for our costume in 2011 than we did in 2010, in my case substantially less and 2.Price wise I don't think I am getting a costume that is "less" that what I got in 2010 when I compare like with like and price with price.

With that said, amid ALL the talk about your wallets being raped,  how come no one said a word about this "costume":

Jab Jab - Mc Farlane Carnival 2010


The cost? $2995.00TT... for brown cotton shorts and top with gold body paint...and the band is not even Fully All Inclusive!

Included in the price: burlap for Monday wear drinks chits for beer, juice and water:
Not Included:  no breakfast, no snacks, no lunch, no "goody bag", no wee wee truck and no premium alcohol choices.


Now, when you want to talk about who "greedy" and digging out your eye talk about ALL bands and not only one! 

I finally got THAT off my chest...been holding it in since I saw Mc Farlane's prices last year.
