The production is scheduled to run for two days on March 13 and 14th at the Cultural Centre.

The Montserrat National Trust will be hosting and exhibition at the National Museum in Little Bay for the length of the festival and it will be open daily from 9AM until 4PM.

The calendar is a mix of events, including the popular MUT Jr Calypso Show, the St. Patrick’s Cultural Pageant, Freedom Run & Walk, live concerts and fetes. Be sure to get you madras outfits for the national service on Sunday, March 11 and for the Heritage Feast on March 17.
