The Rainbow is a beautiful natural phenomenon; knowing the significance of each of the colours of the Rainbow makes it even more beautiful. While nature has created this glorious natural phenomenon; we have given a meaning to its colours. We have a selection of extraordinary venues each with their own unique identity.
Each is individual with a collection of strong personalities giving each venue its own character, identity and charisma. The venues never stand alone, we have a strong family spirit with a mutual respect and understanding for each other. In our diversity there is beauty and there is strength. Diversity is the magic. It is the first manifestation, the first beginning of the differentiation of a thing and of simple identity. The greater the diversity, the greater the perfection. Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.
