July 25th, 2012
Well, we seem to have made it through a good chunk of the week without anyone being struck by lightning, which is always good! Let’s hope any more crazy weather thinking about coming our way gets it over with before next week – soggy Cup Matches are just not so much fun (although they are still fun, just not so much as sunny Cup Matches)! Here is the latest roundup of things to do in Bermuda:
As most of you will be aware by now, Mary Prince, the Bermudian slave whose autobiography galvanised the anti-slavery movement and was the first account of the life of a black woman to be published in the U.K., is being honoured as the 2012 Bermuda National Hero. In recognition of this, Bermuda National Library presents Why Mary Prince Matters, a discussion of her life and story led by Dr. Kim Dismont Robinson. This will be from 6pm until 8pm tonight. For more information, or to RSVP, contact 295-2905 or firstname.lastname@example.org – here’s the flyer!
A great excuse to dig out those flares as Shine’s House of Music & Entertainment is running a 70s Disco Theatre Production every Monday and Thursday at 7.30pm until November 1st. Death by Disco is a family-friendly (PG-13) show with an all-star Bermudian cast featuring Nadanja & Nishanthi Bailey, Jah Simmons, Deborah Joell, Raymond Johnson, DeAzha Chambers and Shine Hayward. Tickets are $75, which includes a four-course dinner plus a complimentary Swizzle, and are on sale at www.bdatix.com, All Wrapped Up and Fabulous Fashions.
