The Big Show calypso tent first to face the judges for Crop Over 2011
On Wednesday, April 20, Tent managers drew for judging dates for the upcoming Crop Over Calypso season and first to face the judges will be the Big Show. This year, twelve tents have registered with the National Cultural Foundation to participate in the Pic-O-De Crop and Party Monarch Competitions. The number includes the Tornadoes and Celebrity Tents which make their return after a short hiatus. Judging in the tents begins on Thursday, June 30.
Commenting on the preparations for the 2011 season, managers indicated that the work to select and register their Calypsonians was well underway. Although none confirmed the venues for their judging, they hastened to interject that the material this year is so compelling that patrons can be assured that wherever they pitch tent, that is the venue to attend, because of exciting line up and quality of entertainment.
Responding to the requests from the tent managers, the NCF has moved The Pic-O-De Crop Semi-Finals back to the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium on Friday, July 22. Also returning this venue is the Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch Competition which will be staged on Saturday, July 23.
