Jerk BBQ on the menu at feast of Jamaican culture

THINGS COULD get very spicy at The Bussey Rooftop Bar in Peckham, south London, on August 6 as six of London’s finest jerk BBQ exponents go head to head with their secret recipes at Wray’s Jerk Fest.

Wray’s Jerk Fest, hosted by Jamaica’s iconic and top-selling white rum Wray & Nephew, features a BBQ battle between spice specialists Fish, Wings & Tings, Mama’s Jerk, Cottons Rhum Shack, White Men Can’t Jerk, Jerk Night and Rudie’s.

Sticky-fingered sampling from each BBQ will be a tough task, but votes will be gathered throughout the day and a Master of Ceremonies will announce the winner of the special prize at 7pm.

In addition to the food, the menu at Wray’s Jerk Fest is packed full of authentic Jamaican experiences; this nine-hour long open-air feast of Jamaican culture also features nine DJs serving up various flavours of music of Jamaican origin or influence.

The sounds kick off from 2pm with sets from Honeuln, Real Roots and Mr Chris, followed by Adam Prescott, Daddy Nature and Unit 137. The vibes continue into the evening with sets from heavyweights King Tubby’s, Trevor Sax, and King Yoof.

Throughout the day, a live graffiti mural by Will Barras will take shape, there’ll be fierce domino competitions and as the night draws in you can pull up a deckchair in the cinema space for a screening of a cult Jamaican film, The Harder They Come.

And if all that spicy food makes you thirsty, the all-important Wray & Nephew bar will serve up tots of full-bodied 100% Jamaican rum and pitchers of Reggae Rum Punch, while you can also test your drink-making skills in the Free Pour challenge and Reggae Rum Punch Relay.

Wray’s Jerk Fest, 2pm-11pm, Saturday 6th August, The Bussey Rooftop Bar, Peckham. Entry to the event is free – and it’s only £5 to sample all the jerk BBQs and have a vote in the competition. Tickets available to reserve places via Ticketweb
