Emma Blanc Portrait PhotographOur Caribbean Director and resident of Barbados, Emma Blanc, talks about the world famous performing arts festival at Holders Season… The 22nd Holders Season hosted by the Kidd family in the beautiful grounds of the 17th century Holders Plantation House overlooking the beautiful West coast, has yet again been one of the high lights of this year’s season in Barbados. Wendy Kidd, producer of the festival, pictured below with model daughter Jodie ensures that each year is as memorable as the last and this year has been no exception. Many visitors plan their time in Barbados to coincide with this event and it is a must do in most of our diaries, especially mine as I spent many years in the Performing arts and events before moving into the Design world.

The Theatre Night was opened by the OTT (Operation Triple Threat) – a developmental performing arts program for local students between the ages of 7 and 21, a division of “Live-Breathe Music!” a company dedicated to offering superior training to musicians and aspiring ones and also one of this year’s beneficiaries of the festival. OTT will also be performing their version of THE WIZ next month at the Frank Collymore Hall in our capital, Bridgetown.
