Anniversary: Blacks and Whites’ Carnival

Anniversary: Blacks and Whites’ Carnival

Every year in Colombia the Black and Whites’ Carnival is celebrated from 2 to 6 January

Blacks and Whites' Carnival

Blacks and Whites’ Carnival

Let’s begin the day with happy news. From 2 to 6 January we can go to Colombia and celebrate with them the Black and White’s Carnival, the latest and most important celebration in southern Colombia. Because we love parties, we recommend this celebration. If you are white, black… whatever you are, wherever you are, let’s celebrate this carnival. It’s always a good way to start this 2013.

Blacks and Whites’ Carnival was established in 1920. In 30 September 2009, it was proclaimed by UNESCO, as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Stages of Blacks and Whites’ Carnival:

Pre-carnival (the day of the water). Basically, people of all ages go out to get wet. 28 December. Happiness, no murders… Great!

The Little Carnival: for children. Creativity, activities… everything funny.

The Castañeda Family Parade. Based on a legend of 1928. Dancing, drinking… nobody injured. Fantastic!

And we can finish with the Day of the Blacks and the Day of the Whites. Great! Everybody is happy. No problems, no existentialism and we can forget ‘fiscal abyss’ for a while.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
