Jamaica 50 years independence Celebrations

Birmingham City Council, in collaboration with the Drum Arts Centre, hosted five days of celebration of Jamaica’s 50 years of independence in Victoria Square. It culminated with the raising of the Jamaican flag outside the council building at about 6.30 p.m., and a concert attended by about 10,000 people who enjoyed a varied programme of singers, dancers and a fashion show.

All brilliantly hosted by GMan and Becks, before the headline act Freddie McGreggor wowed us all with his vast repertoir and his energy. Still a very sexy man, in my humble opinion.

Well done all concerned.
