Crop Over changes likely


Share post:

SOME MAJOR CHANGES could be coming to the Sweetest Summer Festival this year.

Soca Royale competition, which has been staged at Bushy Park, St Philip, since 2010, could be moving to Kensington Oval, which is already the home of the semi-finals of the Sweet Soca and Party Monarch competitions, the Pic-O-De-Crop Finals and Cohobblopot.

When asked about that possible development following the Sponsors Launch of Crop Over at Kensington Oval yesterday, Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley said no decision had been taken on moving two of the biggest events on the Crop Over calendar.

“There are always considerations. We have discussions every year with our stakeholders, but at the end of the day we have to make a decision in terms of those discussions. But no decision has been made to move Soca Royale to Kensington,” said Lashley.
