The Bermuda Tourism Authority is backing six local organisations and entrepreneurs to provide cultural experiences for visitors to the island.

Glenn Jones, the BTA’s chief experience development officer, said PinkSand Entertainment, Eettafel, the Urban Culture Exchange, the Supper Club, the Bermuda Sandcastle Competition and St Peter’s Church were unveiled as successful experience investment applicants.

Mr Jones said each of the awardees will offer a uniquely Bermudian experience for guests in the coming months.

PinkSand Entertainment, headed by Jonathan Tankard, hosts the Made in Bermuda Nights events series on White’s Island with a range of local musicians.

Eettafel organises full-service luxury picnics at iconic Bermuda locations and vistas, while the Supper Club, organised by Scott Nearon, hosts dinners at Elbow Beach.

The Urban Culture Exchange, organised by promoter John Lee, will offer visitors a range of Bermudian cultural experiences.

The BTA also announced its support for the Bermuda Sandcastle Competition and St Peter’s Church, which will this year offer a “Mysteries and Majesties” tour of the historic St George’s church. The BTA said it would host free entrepreneur workshops on August 28 and 29 to help new and existing businesses create initiatives that align with the BTA’s objectives and the wants of visitors.
