St Nicholas Abbey finds a new fan in Rihanna!
When Simon decided to take a well earned break from the Abbey this summer he decided to take two relaxing weeks at his family cottage in Canada with his family and girlfriend, Camilla. The holiday started with a night in Winnipeg to see Rihanna perform one of her first concerts on her LOUD tour but unbeknown to Camilla Simon had actually arranged for VIP tickets and to meet Rihanna back stage! Simon and Camilla watched the concert from the VIP lounge with around 20 other people and enjoyed the luxury of an elevated lounge complete with a fully stocked bar and waitress service! The concert was played to a packed out audience and was a fantastic evening receiving rave reviews the next day. At the end of the concert Camilla and Simon were taken backstage to meet Rihanna who was very happy to find a fellow Bajan, and in fact the only Bajan, in the Canadian crowd. They talked of the beauty of their homeland Barbados....and of course, St Nicholas Abbey Rum!!!
