Wray’s Jerk Fest arrives in London for the first time, taking up residence on the rooftop of the Bussey Building in Peckham for a true celebration of Jamaican culture, with food, drink, music, film, graffiti and games.

Six of London’s best jerk chefs battle it out and you vote for the winner. Who has the flavour that tops all others? It’s up to you to decide.

Wray’s Jerk Fest brings together old school and new school with a huge line-up including King Tubby’s, Trevor Sax, King Yoof, Adam Prescott (Reggae Roast), Real Roots, Daddy Nature (Rompa’s Reggae Shack), Unit 137 Showcase feat. Hylu, Deemas J, Sleepy Time Ghost & Galak Spiritual

Wray’s Jerk Fest offers various games for attendees, from traditional dominoes on Wray’s own tables, to the Free Pour Challenge with prizes for guests that can pour a perfect 25ml measure. The Reggae Rum Punch Relay Race challenge pits teams of four against each other to try and collectively make a Reggae Rum Punch faster than the Jamaican 4x100m relay team’s world record (38 seconds). Winners of the challenges will receive prizes, including limited edition t-shirts, Wray & Nephew tin cups, and domino sets.

A special, free screening of a Jamaican classic will commence at the cinema later in the evening, while the music and games continue on the other side.

Wray’s Jerk Fest is part of the Wray’s Rum Tings series, a celebration of Jamaica, inspired by Wray & Nephew’s rich Jamaican heritage, roots and its influence on UK culture.
