Challenging Stigma and Promoting Recovery through Music.
We are delighted to announce that 2 absolute legends of the music industry have agreed to join us on the line up and support the night. They are none other than one of the pioneers of the Notting Hill Carnival and the legendary Good Times sound system Mr Norman J MBE and the godfather of UK hip hop Rodney P.

The clocks went forward, the sea rolled back, and in a hot, steamy venue, time stood still.
London’s Dub Pistols gave a brief history of reggae, ska, rap and hip-hop, cunningly interweaving punk sensibilities to a hungry house.
Punk scruffy and natty sharp, the band worked the crowd to a roaring mass for a frantic two hours – and the rest.
With a special guest appearance by Rodney P, one of the founders of UK hip-hop, they commanded the audience to ‘bounce’ – and bounce the party crowd did.
Alongside their hard skanking originals were a few covers, such as a rootsy reworking of The Stranglers’ Peaches and a furiously-paced Gangsters, of The Specials fame.
The superb touch of a Rico Rodriguez-style trombonist lent the band a vibe straight out of Jamaica’s Studio One. The skilful use of ‘toasting’ the forerunner of rap, of high profile in the mid-70s, was a joy on the senses.
Truly deep sea bass shook the internal organs, while outbursts of drum ‘n’ bass rolls completed this compelling time travel lesson – from a 70s inner city punk party to sweeping vistas of the dance scene – the Dub Pistols do what no other band can. Revel in the future vintage.
