Black History Month gig at Whittington Hospital

A hospital DJ staged live reggae during an event celebrating Black History Month.

DJ Eddie K hosted the West Indian-inspired gig on Friday, October 25, at the Whittington Hospital in Magdala Avenue, Archway.

Staff and patients enjoyed performances from reggae musicians Siobhan and Lenny Banton, African drummers Fluid Motion and speeches from Edward George, Douglas Williams and Vasco along with displays on historical figures.

Eddie K, who has presented a weekly show at Whittington, said: “It was a wonderful night. I am really proud we managed to pull it off. Everyone had a great time.”

For helping with the display, Eddie K thanked pupils and teacher Caroline Jones from Highgate Wood School and children on the Ifor ward.
