The Queen’s Royal College Old Boys’ Association (OBA), QRC PTA and the Management Team of the College will be hosting the fifth edition of Fete Royal on Saturday, January 27, from 6 pm to 1 am on the college compound, Hayes Street, St Clair.
The annual event is the biggest fund-raiser on the school’s calendar and its proceeds go towards supporting the college’s infrastructural, educational and co-curricular needs. From the last two fetes, the OBA has been able to contribute to the ongoing restoration of school’s science block. The budget for the restoration is approximately $4,800,000 and the hope is that the profits from this year’s event can make an even bigger impact towards the project’s completion.
From year one, the Fete Royal committee has been paying keen attention to always improving the experience at the event. This being its fifth year, they have developed a High 5 of features that patrons can look forward to: great vibes; wonderful ambiance of the college’s magnificent venue, zone out in the Kings’ and Queens’ Quarters and be treated like royalty, music from five top acts and more and of course, the best food and drinks on offer.
Entertainment on the night will be provided by Kes the Band, Destra & Bakanal, Dil-e-Nadan, Ultimate Rejects, Voice and, recently added, Shal Marshall.
As usual, the menu boasts of a wide array of selections from the usual food providers, such as Tandoori Hut (Rasam), Rib House, Barrow’s Catering, Garden Kitchen, Passage to Asia and Atlantic Caterers to name a few, and for the first time, introducing ‘Local Wild Meat’, and other new items to cater to a variety of tastes.
The Kings’ Quarters and Queens’ Quarters will be the pampering zones for the male and female patrons, with hairstyling and makeup, and barbering stations, and a brand new Hookah Bar experience, all while premium brands are being served.
Fete Royal must say “Cheers to 5!” with great drink options, which include an Absolut bar, tequila cocktails and shots, and more provided by our main sponsor Massy Distribution as well as the Carib Zone provide by Carib Brewery.
As usual, security will be top notch in and around the venue to ensure the safety of our patrons and their valued property. Secured parking will be available at Tatil Carpark on Maraval Road and around the venue. However, patrons are urged to ensure that they park their vehicles in a responsible manner.
Patrons will also have the opportunity to win two airlines tickets to Miami courtesy Caribbean Airlines Limited and hampers donated by Massy Distribution.
