We’re live-blogging from all the London 2012 Olympic attractions! Check out the latest updates on Trinbago Village here – and leave your feedback on your visit below.
The Olympics will be taking a trip to the Caribbean this year, as Trinidad and Tobago House — or cultural village, as they are calling it — opens at the Tricycle Theatre on Kilburn High Road, near the Kilburn tube station.
Open all the way through to 25 August, this Culture Fest will also be used to celebrate 50 years since Trinidad and Tobago gained its independence from Britain. Visitors to Trinbago Village will be treated to culture the Trinidadian way, as steel drums, dancing and some local cuisine will spice up the summer right here in London. Tricycle Theatre will be open 10am to 11pm midweek and 10am to 2pm on the weekends throughout the event.
Each day at Trinidad and Tobago House starts with activities for children, before things become more suitable for all the family. Tourists and locals alike can sample typical Trini food like bake and shark and curry. These offerings will be intertwined with theatre and many locally-produced musical acts, ranging from jazz to classical and much more — as the Caribbean nation shows how far it’s come in the past 50 years.
