Deptford Lounge celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Jamaican Independence with a special author event.
The Brixton Bard, Alex Wheatle MBE, is better known for his portrayals of South London street life. This event takes the opportunity to go back chronologically to the beginning of Alex’s Island Songs trilogy, which opens in rural Claremont, Jamaica, and introduces us to sisters Jenny and ‘fire-nettle’ Hortense. Their journey takes in Trenchtown before moving on to Brixton, the main setting for the rest of the trilogy.
We ask that you pre-book your free tickets via The Albany Booking Office (Tel 020 8692 4446) or using the link below.
