~ Essential workers and a guest invited to register for event May 24 ~
~ Showcase to be live streamed for the public ~
Today the Department of Culture provided an update on the Bermuda Day Showcase, which is scheduled to take place May 28, at the National Stadium.
As the public is aware, due to the need for safety, the planned celebrations for this year’s Bermuda Day and Heritage Month activities, have been “re-imagined” in keeping with the current health guidance in place.
The Minister of Youth, Culture and Sport, Dr. Ernest Peets noted that while the traditional Bermuda Day Parade will not take place this year, there will be a covid-safe Bermuda Day Showcase that will take place next Friday, featuring some holiday favourites, including dance troupes, drum bands and more.
This year’s Bermuda Day and Heritage Month theme is “Bermudian Resilience”.
And as a way of acknowledging the extraordinary hard work and commitment of our essential workers over the past year, limited in-person tickets will be reserved for frontline workers and a guest for the event. This event will also be live-streamed on CITV and broadcast on the Government of Bermuda’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
As a note, the Bermuda Day Showcase will be a covid-safe event where all participants will be immunized or tested. For entry in to the event guests must wear a mask and will be asked to have a SafeKey and show a ‘no exposures’ status on the WeHealth App on their phone.
Essential workers will be invited to register online to attend the Bermuda Day Showcase. Tickets are free but pre-registration and receipt of a ticket will be necessary to enter the event.
Registration will open Monday, May 24, 2021.
Limited tickets will be issued on a first-come, first serve basis to essential workers and one guest.
In order to pre-register essential workers should note the following requirements:
– Essential worker ID/proof
– Proof of immunization for each essential worker and guest (second shot no later than May 13); or
– Negative covid test result for each essential worker and guest (test taken on May 25 or May 26)
Today Minister Peets said, “The 2021 Heritage Month theme is Bermudian Resilience and we’re inviting our resilient essential workers to the National Sports Centre next Friday to experience some of the exciting flavours of Bermuda Day.
“Our line-up includes colourful dance troupes, singers, and a few special surprises along the way. This event is our way of thanking those who put their lives on the line during the roughest part of the pandemic.
“This includes our healthcare workers, the Police, Bermuda Regiment soldiers, grocery store workers, gas station attendants, as well as other frontline workers who have sacrificed so much for Bermuda during the pandemic.”
