An unprecedented decision has been taken for the 2015 calypso season, which will involve the organising of shows by one body and not the respective six calypso tents.

The disclosure was made to RCI News by the head of the St. Lucia Association of Registered Tents - START.

Mr.. Fitzroy Bingo Leon says that the move is in light of dwindling sponsorship funds and doubts over the provision of government subvention.

He says that the proposal was recently presented to the Carnival Planning and Management Agency.

The 2015 Calypso season is scheduled to commence on May 30th.

The Calypso shows are the main contributors to the success of the islands' Carnival Celebrations.
