Roots of Reggae FREE launch event, Upstairs at Ritzy Brixton, Saturday 3rd December, 3-7 pm

South London resident Francis Clarke has organised the FREE Roots of Reggae event to bring people of all ages together to celebrate reggae music and culture. The event takes places Upstairs at the Ritzy Brixton on Saturday 3rd December, 3 – 7 pm. Roots of Reggae is a FREE community event and has been developed with Ritzy Brixton cinema and Age UK Lambeth.

Brixton and reggae go hand in hand and Roots of Reggae brings this local scene to life. Older people are invited to come along, enjoy some great music and share their memories. For younger people, the event offers a unique chance to hear music from reggae’s golden age in the company of pioneers of the Brixton scene.

Roots of Reggae offers an afternoon of live performances and DJ sets. Confirmed acts include: Sly and Reggie (Suburban Pirate), Mistah-Brown Selecta (Tighten-Up Crew), DJ Keith Lawrence (Colourful Radio) and MC DaddyRanks and reggae poet Roy Gunter. We are also expecting sound system legend Lloydie Coxsone (Sir Coxsone Sound) to share his memories of reggae music. Guests will also have the chance to share their own memories of reggae music and Brixton’s past.

Roots of Reggae is designed to be accessible for all. Ritzy Brixton is an accessible venue.

For further information about the event please contact Francis Clarke on 07749374339 or or visit our Facebook page.
