Holders House, St. James, again plays host to this musical and theatrical festival. This stately house has been in existence for over 300 years and is an interesting mixture of English and Barbadian vernacular. The grounds are extensive and lovely with mature tropical trees and shrubs, the perfect setting for the open-air theatre that comes alive every year during the Holders Season"

The production always plays to capacity houses and it's high artistic standard draws audiences from around the world.
