    Remember the man nicknamed ‘Marigold Man’? He used to stand at the bottom of Grapes Hill, Norwich, with marigolds and wellies directing traffic due to a head injury he suffered with an axe. His real name is unknown but he brought smiles to a lot of people in Norfolk and this music and dance project celebrates his life. The music and dance will be from Sub-Saharan cultures and finish with the Gamboot dance of South Africa, which also uses wellies, marigolds and overalls. People of Norfolk speak about this man with such fond memories and this is a great chance to celebrate and remember him.

    A series of three public African dance workshops and three drumming workshops will take place between 15th September and 28th October and culminate in this public performance on Sunday 28th October 2012. The performance will be a celebration of Marigold’s life and how his unfortunate condition made him a famous figure to so many people within Norfolk.

    Organised by Tambai Community Projects. Please contact Anna Mudeka for more information about the workshops.
