Jamaica House: London Olympics

The O2 will come alive to the sound of reggae this summer after the Jamaica National Olympic Committee decided to change plans and choose the Greenwich venue as its national hospitality house during the London Olympics. Initial plans had been for Jamaica to host a special week-long Jamaica Festival in Finsbury Park, but this idea was scrapped because of escalating costs. Jamaica House at The O2 will provide a range of entertainment for guests of the nation - and there will be high hopes of celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jamaica a day after an expected victory for the world's fastest man Usain Bolt in the 100m final on 5th August. Coinciding with Jamaica's takeover of The O2, a Respect Jamaica 50 event will take place at both Proud2 and IndigO2 from 24 July to 6 August, featuring performances by Bob Marley's musician sons Stephen and Damian, the poet Benjamin Zephaniah and the reggae stars Shaggy, Maxi Priest and Lee 'Scratch' Perry. Robert Bryan, director of Jamaica 50, told The Times that he hoped the event would create "even more great Jamaican moments". With Bolt and his national rival Yohan Blake favourites in the 100m (and in Bolt's case, the 200m as well), expect Jamaica House to be where the party's at should things go to plan.
