Celebrations in the city-Jamaica 50th Anniversary of Independence
Jamaica came to Birmingham today in all its glory, basking in its independence day celebrations!
The city centre was filled with noise, the smell of cooking food and reggae music. Me and my friend had finished working at the gallery and headed outside to be greeted by masses of people! So, naturally, we headed to a Jamaican bar that had been set up in a stall…I may have had a cheeky rum!
I took some photographs of the crowds outside…
There was such a great sense of community- it was great to see people reacting to the music. I am glad I was in the city and had the chance to join in!
