Bristol Dub Club Soundsystem Extravaganza! Raising AWARENESS for the Justice for Marlon Thomas Campaign

Bristol Dub Club – All Day & Night & Night family friendly session!

A family friendly all day & night party held at Lost Horizon on Saturday 13th July. The event starts at 14:00 and finishes at 03:00 with last entry at 02:00. The event has been tagged in the dub, reggae, roots reggae and rock steady categories.

After an incredible sell out event at Lost Horizon in January when Roots Injection met 1Relation, Bristol Dub Club is back with a 13 hour dub reggae soundsystem extravaganza in support of the ‘Justice For Marlon Thomas Campaign’ featuring 2 of Bristol’s finest sound systems as well as some brilliant guest artists from near and far.

Bristol’s veteran thunderweight sound Jah Lokko Sound System will be playing throughout the day out in the yard while 1Relation Sound System (next generation) will be stringing up in the hall to takeover at 10pm and carry it on through the night!
There’s gonna be some killer local singers & MC’s bouncing off each other and bringing the vibes across both segments of this dance, a contrast between the deep soulful, silky & sweet tones of Rudey Lee & Sista Ina and the more militant mic chanting style of stalwarts Victor & Snoopy. plus there’ll be guest selection from Anonymous Dub Sound as well as special guests Mighty Oak coming all the way down from Scotland to play a unique set for the people!For this edition of Bristol Dub Club we are also supporting an important cause by trying to raise awareness and donating any profits made to the Justice For Marlon Thomas Campaign.
For those who don’t know, Marlon Thomas, along with other young black people, were the victims of a brutal racist attack by thugs working at a fairground stationed on the Durdham Downs in Bristol in 1994.
The perpetrators of this heartless & racially aggravated assault set upon Marlon and others with baseball bats, hammers, pieces of wood, and whatever else they could get their hands on whilst shouting racial slurs.
Marlon was left fighting for his life with severe head injuries, and, although he survived after spending many weeks in hospital, he has been left with minimal quality of life ever since the attack, with his family bearing the weight of a lifetime of caring for him whilst also facing the never ending reminder of their loss & the injustice that took place that day.
Meanwhile the aggressors received lenient sentences and were eventually able to continue with their lives.
Rudey Lee who will be singing at this event is also Marlon’s brother and one of his primary carers, He is an excellent reggae artist in his own right having performed and recorded many tracks over the years, including projects with Dubkasm.We want to reflect on this racial injustice that took place in our city and show some love and solidarity to Marlon Thomas who had his potential so cruelly snatched away, as well as to Rudey Lee and the whole family who have had to live with this painful injustice for so many years.
To let them know that Bristol still cares and they are not alone while they continue to face the struggles and financial uncertainties whilst caring for Marlon.This one is for Marlon Thomas and his family,

This is going to be a memorable one people so come support the ting & enjoy yourself!

There will be food as well. ÔłŹ

Unity in the community! ‚̧ԳŹ

Windrush To Bristol: events programme to honour ongoing legacy as well as  Bristol Bus Boycott Pioneers at Bristol Beacon

Bristol Beacon to host an event series commemorating the extraordinary stories and contributions of individuals from the Windrush generation this June

Honouring the history of the Windrush generation, Bristol Beacon is hosting a programme of performance, exhibitions and events from Wednesday 19 РSaturday 22 June 2024 to continue the legacy in Bristol today. Across the three days in the run up to Windrush Day on Saturday 22 June, Windrush To Bristol will showcase the incredible impact of Black Caribbean people on Bristol, the UK and the world.

Through the event series, Windrush To Bristol invites us to champion a more equitable city for people of all colours, cultures and class. Bristol can expect to discover the history of Windrush, dive into the music of Black Caribbean artists of Bristol and beyond, and be inspired by a more equitable vision for the future.

Windrush The Journey, a concert and exhibition by Pegasus Opera Company, will take place across each of the three days in Bristol Beacon’s Lantern Hall.  For more than 30 years, Pegasus Opera Company has fearlessly paved the way for diverse talent in opera, and through Windrush The Journey, they will showcase a rich tapestry of music and storytelling whilst celebrating Black classical composers of the past, present and future.

Bringing the music of Chevalier de Saint Georges, Richard Thompson and Des Oliver to the fore, with words for the opera by Bristolian Edson Burton, the performance will honour the legacy of the Windrush generation with an outstanding fusion of classical music, jazz and blues. A fascinating, immersive exhibition showcasing the work of Black British composers, photographs and local Windrush testimony, will be showcased throughout the week.

Another brand new exhibition will collate Bristol people’s reflections and ideas around race, representation and resilience, with a vision to forge them into a manifesto to achieve racial equality for the city. From Thursday 20 June Race Cards: A Blueprint 4 Change will be on display, curated in partnership with CuriosityUnLtd, and inspired by the activism of the Bristol Bus Boycott and inspirational vision of Martin Luther King’s Dream.

CuriosityUnLld launched #Race4Power in January 2023 at the people‚Äôs plinth. Touring Bristol with a giant card of MartinLuther King, this grassroots research project sought people‚Äôs answers to questions around race, representation and resilience. The exhibition, curated by Julz Davis, will display 500+ responses and is designed to spark a set of challenging conversations to inform the co-creation of a new grassroots-led manifesto on racial equality for the city. A new music track and anthem for change, ‚ÄėWe Rise‚Äô, created by four young Bristol music artists will sit at the heart of the exhibition.

Ujima Radio Tribute to Ras Bandele Selassie

31.3.1950 ‚Äď 25.3.2024

Ujima Radio pays tribute to an outstanding community stalwart, spiritual leader, counsellor, exemplary family man and role model of deep commitment to RasTafari livity.


Ras Bandele Selassie was born in Blackwood, Clarendon, Jamaica on 31 st March 1950. He came to the UK in 1964 aged 14 and settled in Trowbridge with his parents and siblings until
he moved to Bristol in 1978.
Ras Bandele and his Empress Sis Morowa have been in union for just shy of 50 years, they have been blessed with 12 children, 29 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren, all of which witnessed his impactful community work since his trod in the RasTafari movement from 1976.


To say Ras Bandele was deeply driven and unwavering in his faith and commitment to a life of service through Rastafari livity may be somewhat of an understatement. This is because the man affectionately known as Ras B had an open heart for all humanity regardless of race or faith and in this respect, provided counsel to many and rejected none. His wisdom and presence in the community was not just a gift to Bristolians as Ras Bandele had an international profile through his priestly duties at Fairfield House in Bath, the former
residence of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I. RasTafari Brethren and Sistren would come to Fairfield House from all parts of the UK on sacred RasTafari calendar days and Ras Bandele and the Trustees of Fairfield House would host members of the Ethiopian Royal family on many occasions.


Ras Bandele’s life of service includes providing faith spaces in Bristol since 1986, including his own home. During his affiliations with the 12 Tribes of Israel, the Nyahbinghi order and is own organisation Lion of Judah Prevail Unity, Ras B would minister at 77 Ashley Rd, St Nicholas Road and most recently at the RasTafari Cultural Centre 136 Grosvenor Rd, St Pauls, Bristol. Ras Bandele would lead the regular monthly, first Saturday Sabbatical Ises held at Fairfield House.
The upstairs of the RasTafari Cultural Centre (RCC) was initially gifted by existing tenants who ran the Marlon Thomas Campaign, eventually the RCC would occupy downstairs front of house which helped to transform the visibility and participation in the centre, up to this very day. After a very successful Save the Rastafari Cultural Centre Campaign as the premises was threatened with a sale on the open market, supporters of the RCC raised enough money to purchase the space in February 2024. We give thanks that Ras B was with
still with us to witness the fruits of his and other’s efforts.

Ras Bandele was a selfless man, a unifier, a wise man and inspiration to many of all ages, races and religions. This humble servant of the Most High will be missed by many but remembered by all. His legacy is in his family, his faith, his works and our memories of him ‚Äďhis humility, assertiveness, sense of humour and parable-like orations will continue to be quoted by many: ‚ÄėWatch and Pray‚Äô which was also a signature wordsound Ras B would utter
as a radio presenter in former years.

Ujima Radio sends deepest condolences to his Queen, Sis Morowa and all the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, siblings and wider family. Ras Bandele will be laid to rest on Monday 22nd April at the Malcolm X Centre,141 City Rd Bristol, 10.30 am.
