The 1970’s Lovers Rock Exhibition

Celebrating 50 years of Lovers Rock in the UK 1972 to 2022

Examining the 1970’ foundation years

Charting the evolution from a Jamaican sound to a distinct British sound

Curated by CeeBee Multimedia aka Colin Brown, this exhibition is the first ever to focus on the foundation years of the genre. Artists and bands who have so often been overlooked are highlighted and the most successful artists of the period like Janet Kay ('Silly Games') are celebrated.

A serious attempt is made to establish the chronology of when UK based reggae artists and bands released their first Lovers Rock song. The exhibition charts the evolution from a Jamaican sound to a distinctively British sound, from Romantic Reggae to UK Lovers Rock.

25 October - Exhibition Open - 31 October - Exhibition Closed
