Description

Join Peter Moore as he celebrates the 40th anniversary of Antigua and Barbuda’s independence with a tour of the islands’ unique culture and heritage.

Young historian, Desley Gardiner leads us through Nelson’s Dockyard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most complete Georgian naval yard in the world, and reveals an incredible link between the past and the people that work there today.

Antigua’s most patriotic citizen, Hilson Jospeh explains why the locals call him ‘Flag Man’ and tells us how he celebrated Independence Day. (Hint: It involved flags!)

And Nicole Arthurton Dennis of Nicole’s Table reveals the delicious food that makes holidays so special on the islands and spills her secret to making the perfect rum punch.

Finally, in the first of a regular series, Mauricia from the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority gets us up to speed on the local vernacular. In this episode, she tells us about ‘liming’ – what it is, how to do it and where to do it.

Join the celebrations now.
