Date set for BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS ‘blue plaque’ event in London

FORM UK, the Federation Of Reggae Music, has announced the date and location for the upcoming BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS heritage ‘blue plaque’ ceremony in London.

The commemorative plaque will be unveiled at 15 The Circle in Neasden NW2 7QR on 8 September from 3pm.

THE WAILERS first lived in the Borough of Brent when they came to the UK in 1972.

According to a BBC report, the semi-detached house in Neasden would have included panoramic views of the North Circular, parts of Wembley and the Welsh Harp by Brent Reservoir.

The Neasden address is just one of many locations where BOB MARLEY lived when he was in London, including a Bayswater bed and breakfast, a Chelsea townhouse and a school gym in Peckham.

There is also already a blue plaque for MARLEY at Ridgmount Gardens in Camden.

The Kevin MacDonald-directed BOB MARLEY documentary ‘Marley’ got its worldwide premiere in April and received high praise from fans and film critics alike.

Also in that month the ‎"Crown Prince of Reggae" DENNIS BROWN was honoured with the unveiling of a blue plaque in Harlesden, North West London.
