We were delighted to host the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and the Nubian Jak Community Trust for the unveiling of a blue plaque at our offices on St Peter’s Square marking the history of the building – the former office and Studios of Island Records. The ceremony was part of Black History Month and marks 60 years since the seminal label moved to Hammersmith from Jamaica and almost 50 years since Island occupied the building.
In October sunshine in St Peter’s Square members of the renowned Brit-funk band Hi-Tension and The Effra Band provided the musical accompaniment alongside four Year 6 pupils from Wendell Park primary school in Shepherds Bush who sang classic Bob Marley & The Wailers tunes.
