Bermuda Rendezvous (formerly "Bermuda Heart and Soul" Programme) consists of a variety of programmes which are designed to offer Bermuda’s winter visitors a choice of activities. This programme is organized to run from November to March so that during this off-season period our visitors and locals will always have an opportunity to find entertaining, educational and culturally enriching programmes. All programmes are offered free of cost and are quite popular with our visitors and participating locals.
The Department of Community and Cultural Affairs therefore organizes and promotes most of the following activities:
Walking Tours of Dockyard, Somerset, Hamilton and St. Georges
Visits to Dockyard and the Craft Market where craft-making demonstrations of a variety of souvenier items eg. Cedar crafts, Banana leaf dolls, pottery, glassblowing can be seen
Tours of official/Government buildings
Regiment Displays and Gombey Performances
Lectures/Talks at the Bermuda National Gallery and the St. George’s World Heritage Site.
Each of the above listed events has an assigned tour guide that shares important and informative aspects of the specific item as well as general tales of Bermuda’s culture and traditions. Attendance to these events fluctuates but most are quite popular with our visitors who find these events wonderful opportunities for gaining knowledge and appreciation for Bermuda’s traditions and culture.
