UK star’s rare 2011 appearance aims to help community carnival return to its Roots! A rare chance to “Witness the Fitness” in 2011 as the London-born lyricist will play only selected UK festivals this summer after a long stint in the studio.
Roots Manuva (real name Rodney Smith) is the biggest artist to have headlined Fiesta in the Park, a crucial fundraiser established last year to raise money for the Cowley Road Carnival – a spectacular community celebration which attracts over 30,000 people a year. The carnival has faced funding difficulties in the last three years because of cuts to arts and regeneration funding, and this concert offers a chance for people to vote with their dancing feet by buying a ticket and coming out to party!
Phone: Pegasus Box Office 01865 812150 in person or over the phone from 10am daily till 8pm Mon - Wed and 10pm Thursday to Saturday and 3pm on Sundays.
