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

About this event


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

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

It is a family-friendly edutaiment 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 important reggae record companies played by Chaaawaaa Radio, M-Press Abena Lee and DJ Dapps, but you will also learn much about British reggae history through presentations, and quizzes by True Identity - 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 recently departed reggae artists and industryites, with a special emphasis on International Reggae Day UK supporter Menelik Shabazz (read this) and BBM/BMC Awards (Foundation Builder) recipient Sonny Roberts. There will also be an update on the TMC Studios (Tooting Music Centre) Reggae Plaque (read this)!

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.
