The five-day event will also feature workshops with UK recording artists such as; Carol Thompson (Queen of Lover’s Rock); Alan Weekes (of Aswad), Dennis Bovell (of Matumbi), BB Seaton (of the Gaylads) and others.

Founder Colin Robinson said: “The Reggae Exhibition was created to bring awareness to the music through exhibition material and not just listen to it through sound systems. We have visitors from all over the world and we now have a request to take it to Africa. We would like to eventually take the exhibition to Jamaica where people can see how the music has impacted the world.”
