Open to all ages and set to be a great family event, Cedella Marley released the following statement on behalf of the Marley family:
"We are delighted about the Bob Marley Way celebrations on July 29th. Dad enjoyed many happy times in South London, so I'm pleased Marley's Mellow Mood is working with this community to create an event that will both entertain and leave a legacy. I'm especially excited that our charitable platform 1Love.Org will be on-site to share news on its on-going mission to promote youth, planet and peace."
The Regeneration Celebration team will liaise with local residents and work with a variety of local and national dance, performance and arts groups, alongside regional community groups and businesses.
The event will also provide further opportunities for the community by offering a selection of paid, voluntary and work experience roles to local residents, who are looking to gain experience in live events and project management.
Youth workshops will take place across the day that will continue after the event and there will be a donation to the local community centre instead of site fees for local traders attending the event
