Caymanian culture and heritage were proudly on display Monday night in London, as celebrations for the Coat of Arms’ 60th anniversary kicked off.
UK dignitaries including Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson were treated to the sounds of the Swanky Kitchen Band.
Jean-Eric Smith, better known locally as Notch, was in attendance for the event. He told Cayman 27 the Cayman of yesteryear came alive through food, drink, and cultural craft.
“The cayman craft market and all of the tourism attractions were prominently featured in the displays, and the natural splendor of Cayman obviously, it was nice,” he said Tuesday, speaking from the UK.
The festivities included a demonstration of the old time thatch-rope making techniques, right in the middle of the Foriegn and Commonwealth Office at Durbar court.
