THE Reggae Fun, History, Music, Quiz & Prizes Event!

Monday Oct. 4 2021, 6-9pm (UK)

The Monday Xtra History Sessions kicks off with what’s going to be simply THE best Reggae Fun, History, Music, Quiz & Prizes event ever!

This event will be delivered by BTWSC/African Histories Revisited, BBM/BMC (BritishBlackMusic.com/Black Music Congress), Reggae Fraternity UK, and partners (t.b.c).

It is a family-friendly event led by historical musicologist Kwaku and Reggae Fraternity UK and Chaaawaaa Radio’s Colin ‘CeeBee’ Brown, in which not only will you have fun, hear some of the best upfront British reggae, and classic British cuts from the catalogue of two important reggae record companies, but you will also learn much about British reggae history – be prepared to discover little-known historical gems, plus there will be prizes galore for quiz winners!

We’ll also cover the BRAFA (British Reggae Artists Famine Appeal) story and update on Hackney Council’s unveiling of BRAFA Square, and a tribute to some of the recent reggae artists and industryites, with a special emphasis on International Reggae Day UK supporter Menelik Shabazz and BBM/BMC Awards (Foundation Builder) recipient Sonny Roberts. There will also be an update on the TMC Studios (Tooting Music Centre) Reggae Plaque.

So since you’ve landed on this page, do yourself a favour and book now. If you’ve attended any of our previous events, and know that we deliver.
