Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee(TTOC) president Larry Romany will attend the opening of the T&T cultural village.
" Over the years the TTOC tried to  encourage  the Tourism authorities  to use the opportunity of the Olympic games to showcase T&T. We  saw  other countries use the occasion and felt that T&T was missing out . I am happy that His Excellency Garvin Nicholas believed that the combination of the Olympics and the 50th anniversary of our Independence presented an opportunity not to be missed." said Romany T&T will host a culture fest in London during the 2012 Olympic games. The event will be held at the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn, London, and  will be facilitated by T&T High Commissioner to London Garvin Nicholas and will run from  26 July to August 25 .
The venue is only 20 minutes from the Olympic Village by train. The festival will include a number of children’s workshops. In addition there will be workshops on preparation of local foods , drumming and a variety of other activities for children.
The festival will put the spotlight on T&T’s culture and talent and cuisine. There will be booths with local foods such as bake and shark, curry, sada roti, local soups and a Creole kitchen.
