Earlier this month the Museum of London shifted focus to temporarily become the Museum for London as part of a mission to bring first-class online content to visitors at home while our physical doors are closed.
The most recent addition to the Museum for London online programming is a series of free stay-at-home events ranging across videos, talks, tours and in-conversations that you can enjoy right from home.
Join the Museum for a two-week celebration of London’s Dub and Reggae culture over the years. They will explore the community and social impact, as well as the artistic influence of Dub and Reggae in London, through interviews, oral histories, performance and more.
As part of a year-long celebration marking the anniversary of Bob Marley’s 75th birthday, Universal Music and the Marley Family will be releasing a special documentary on Bob Marley’s time in London in the 70s. Join them here for unseen footage and new and exclusive content exploring the influence of this reggae icon on the city.
