Sounds of St Lucia & Stony Hill House
USD90 per person
Enjoy the captivating sights and sounds of this Caribbean gem.
As you stroll through the meticulously landscaped tropical gardens of Stony Hill Great House, you’ll be awestruck by the tropical surroundings, including the orchid house, perfume trees, and flower and cactus beds. Afterwards, gather on the veranda of the Great House and savour some local delicacies and fruit juice, accompanied by the sounds of a local pannist.
Then you’ll have the opportunity to master the art of steel pan playing yourself. The small fishing village of Gros Islet is home to the local outdoor working panyard of the Pantime Steel Band, a group dedicated to steel pan culture and the development of young people through music. Here you’ll learn the techniques to play a few notes, and perhaps even a simple tune – it’s great fun.
