Foreday Mornin’ bands will no longer have to pay a $750 registration fee to participate in Crop Over. Furthermore, the closing time for that popular event has been extended by an hour to 8 a.m., while Grand Kadooment will now finish at 10 p.m.

These were three of the decisions agreed to between the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) and bandleaders at a special meeting called to discuss security and other matters on Thursday night at the Steel Shed in Queens Park. crop-over-central-bloc

The major areas not finalised were the route for Grand Kadooment and a change from the BIDC car park as one starting point for Foreday Mornin’. Also, still to be agreed on are permission for bands to again use 40-foot music trucks for both Foreday Mornin’ and Grand Kadooment. (SP)
