British Black Music Month (BBMM) 2018 Launch/’Britain’s Contribution To The Development Of Reggae’ Full Version

Sunday June 1 2018, 6.30-9.00pm

We launch British Black Music Month (BBMM) 2018 with the premiere of the full version of the ‘Britain’s Contribution To The Development Of Reggae’ vox pops documentary – 5 years in the making, it was initially started to mark Jamaica’s 50th anniversary.

Organised by Music Congress

Britains Contribution To Reggae

It’s poignant that we start British Black Music Month (BBMM) 2018 by marking Reggae @ 50 with probably the only time that the full version of ‘Britain’s Contribution To The Development Of Reggae’ will receive a public screening. The documentary has contributions from dozens of contributors* drawn randomly – it includes artists, producers, journalists, DJs, broadcasters, lecturers, and music fans.

Event takes place at University College London near Euston Square (full address upon booking – there’s a £5 refunable charge); wheel chair accessible.

This family-friendly event includes an introduction to the BBMM2018 programme, a short Windrush @ 70-inspired presentation on Britain and Reggae in the last 50 years entitled ‘Reggae Could Not Hve Become An International Phenomenon Withut Britain!’, plus a quick-fire quiz, with a few reggae prizes.
