US TV coverage of London’s New Year’s Day celebrations is being powered by a Caribbean Dream Team in Antigua & Barbuda.
The sumptuous destination has partnered with LNYDP organisers Destination Events, to bring live coverage of the event to more than 300 TV stations across America on PBS.
Dean Fenton US Director of the Antigua & Barbuda Tourist Board said: “Antigua and Barbuda is the dream destination of 2022 – so dare to dream on New Year’s Day whilst watching LNYDP on PBS America. What a way to celebrate the New Year!”
The two-and-a-half-hour show, which starts at 08.00 Eastern, features a cornucopia of holiday treats – dancers, singers, novelty acts and community groups and performances from US Marching Bands due to travel to London for the 2023 event.
The forthcoming all-ticketed event (now sold out) will be staged at a temporary outdoor arena in Waterloo Place in the heart of London’s West End just a stones throw from royal palaces and parks.
Bob Bone, Executive Director of LNYDP, has a strong association with Antigua & Barbuda, having been travelling there for more than 40 years.
He said: “Antigua & Barbuda is without doubt my favourite destination, so it almost goes without saying, that I am delighted to partner with the tourist board to bring our show to the USA.
“I can’t wait to go back to Antigua & Barbuda to enjoy it to the full once more.”
