As Notting Hill Carnival nears, celebrate a century of black music in London
Dizzee Rascal's hopped up party buzz brought grime to the UK in a big way. But how did he get there? Take a trip through the sultry jazz movement, the reggae infused sound of ska, and Brixton blues parties. Leading you through 100 years of black music in London is author Lloyd Bradley, a musical boffin who has written for Mojo, Q, and the NME. General admission. This event is free for YPlanners and entry is on a first come first served basis. We need your card details to store the event information in "My Tickets", but rest assured, we won't charge you a penny.
