MUSTIQUE 50th

July 21, 2018

The day has come!  Today is the day we celebrate 50 years of the formation of the Mustique Company!  The bands are practicing at Basil's Bar,  The chefs are prepping back in the kitchens,  The ale is being bottled and labelled in the brewery, BBQs are lit down at the waterfront, Flowers cut and arranged, tables being laid, costumes being tweaked, fireworks set out, siestas for the little ones allowed to stay up late tonight, and everyone looking forward to the evenings festivities.

7pm at Basil's Bar for cocktails Where Angus' 'Mustique Gold' pale ale made its debut. A wander down the coast to a tent-lined Dolly Beach with tables running the entire length, beautifully set with the new china I have been waiting for so impatiently!  

After dinner Fireworks over Basil's Bar.  Quite spectacular and just what we needed to get us up from the dinner table and back down to the bar for a rare treat indeed.  The night kicked off with Calypso Rose who utterly stole our hearts.  What a legend!  What charisma!  She rocked!  and everyone rocked with her,  half the dancers climbed up on the stage, just be close to such a great woman....  

....and on to more dancing and revelry with Matt Clifford and his band.

‘This will be my 40th year in Mustique. I first started coming here in 1979, 1980. It was very bohemian and wonderful.’ Gazing out from Basil’s Bar, his favourite painting spot on Mustique, this is how Alex Beard - artist, storyteller, and longtime Mustique regular - begins our conversation.
