Leading Jamaican athletes, music stars and artists will join forces to celebrate the Caribbean island’s 50th anniversary of independence in a spectacular Birmingham concert this summer.
Just days before they head to London for the Olympic Games, Jamaica’s gold medal hopefuls will attend Jamaica’s 50th Cultural Extravaganza at the Symphony Hall on July 25.
Taking a break from the pre-Olympic training camp at the University of Birmingham, they will be entertained by a host of stars including Jamelia, Musical Youth and Jaki Graham.
The event is being hosted by the Association of Jamaican Nationals (Birmingham) UK in association with Birmingham City Council, The Jamaican High Commission and The Jamaican Athletics Administrative Association.
Proceeds from the event will go towards the Jamaican Athletic Administrative Association for sports development in Jamaica.
Tickets for the spectacular concert will cost £30 and performers on the night will include:
