Get ready to feel the reggae rhythm at a special Good Friday family special of Simmer Down, your ultimate destination for reggae and revival vibes.

Join us for an all ages edition of our regular free monthly meet-up and daytime dance, that'll have you grooving in the heart of London.

Presented in partnership with Tomorrow’s Warriors, we're on a mission to unite communities through the power of reggae, sparking joy with live music and positivity.

This special family version will include guest DJs from JustVibez and opportunities to join in, alongside great music as always from our partners Tomorrow Warriors.

BookLove, the travelling multicultural book carnival, also joins the Simmer Down party this Good Friday with a wide range of books for adults and children.

At Simmer Down, we're not just about music; we're about creating a home for reggae enthusiasts to shake a leg and embrace the good vibes.

Our partnership with Tomorrow’s Warriors, a leading talent development agency specialising in jazz, ensures a fusion of musical excellence.

So, mark your calendar, bring your dancing shoes, and let's turn up the reggae heat together – it's time to Simmer Down and feel the irie spirit of unity.
