This year marks the the 50th anniversary of Bob Marley’s performance at the De La Warr Pavilion.

The concert which took place on 16th July 1972, was the year Marley signed with CBS Records and embarked on a UK tour supporting singer Johnny Nash.  The performance at De La Warr Pavilion was the first appearances that Marley made in the UK. The concert was organised by Bexhill Lions Club and was in aid of the Glyne Gap School swimming pool appeal. The President at the time was Charles Brookes.
