‘Jamaica Rum Tings’ heads to Kingston on August 24th

Saturday 24th August will see Wray and Nephew Overproof Rum team up with Reggae Roast to launch ‘Jamaica Rum Tings’; a celebration of Jamaican culture through a series of music and cultural events inspired by Wray & Nephew’s Jamaican roots. The series will conclude at London Fields Brewery, with a pre-carnival warm up that will bring the spirit of Jamaica to the East for a one-off exclusive event featuring legendary DJ and producer Shy FX showcasing his first ever reggae album.

This year will mark 40 years since Jamaican soundsystems first set up at the Notting Hill Carnival, and this year Jamaica comes to life throughout the streets of Kingston during the day. The evening will see Adam Prescott, Vibration Lab and Ramon Judah perform until the early hours. Day tickets are free, and night tickets are available here.
