The first of four in the series, Summer Social, Part 1 is a free ticketed event with the legendary Musical Youth heading up a host of anthems, including their global number one single ‘Pass the Dutchie’, which made Musical Youth a household name around the world.

Also on the bill is Horseman, with their incredible track record in the scene, having worked with Tippa Irie, Max Romeo, Gregory Issacs, Sugar Minott, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and many more. Throughout the day, guests will also be dancing to some incredible music from Bristol, including from Lexxi, Sasha Steppa and Angel Mel, who is returning to the venue after her unforgettable set with Jazzie B earlier this year. 

With more than just a stellar music line-up, visitors can experience mouth-watering Caribbean flavours from Agnes Spencer's Amazing Jamaican cuisine. Flavour-seekers can expect to indulge in authentic Jamaican food including Curry Goat, Jerk Chicken and Jamaican Patties. Resident food vendors, Jafra and Pizzarova will also be on hand to dish up some sensational food.
