Spirit of the Caribbean Annual Ball

Location

Location TBC

The Spirit of the Caribbean Annual Ball incorporating the Black Honour Awards will bring together like-minded people who uphold and share similar values.

The theme for our first flagship fundraising Black Tie Ball is “Around the Islands” to be held at Venue: to be confirmed.  The evening will include an exquisite 3 course meal, dazzling entertainment with a few surprises along the way, making this the not to be missed Ball of 2022.

The Awards will be a look back acknowledging what has gone before and laying the foundations for what is yet to come. The Spirit of the Caribbean Annual Ball will be a significant part of our fundraising drive that will support the development of our three events to include our free community event Emancipation Remembrance Day UK.

How would we describe the Spirit of the Caribbean? We are, cultured, welcoming, resilient and innovative!
