We at Mangrove Mas Band want to make sure you have the best time with us on Carnival Sunday and Monday. You safety is our main priority, we will have a team of security highly trained stewards with us on both days, as well as a dedicated hospitality team. We do have a few simples guidelines to ensure your safety while on the road.
Mangrove Safety Advise – Carnival Monday

* Do not accept drinks from strangers. Mangrove is an Inclusive band so drinks will be available all day via our Main Bar & Mobile bar to all registered masqueraders.
* Please DO NOT share band provisions (drinks/food/snacks) with non band members, this will result is automatic exclusion from band.
* Do not invite non Mangrove Mas masqueraders to join you in the band, This will result in the automatic exclusion of both parties!

* On Carnival Monday, Mangrove Mas is an over 18’s only band so all persons under that age are not invited. This is due to safety reasons and licenses.
