    RIGHTS RIDDIMS RESPECT An evening of celebration where musicians and supporters come together to expel misconceptions around school exclusion, and raise money to help support children, who have been permanently excluded from school, back into education. CEN offers advice, support and representation at Governor's appeals and independent hearings. The service aims both to help minimise the use of school exclusion in the first place, as well as to counter its damaging effects, by facilitating a swift return to full-time, mainstream education. Acts are: Maroon Town, a ten-piece explosion of ska, rap and brassy dub has been tearing up audiences around the world across three decades. Tens of thousands of people from South America to the Caribbean, India to Canada, Indonesia to Brunei and from Central Asia to their native UK have witnessed the force the band is on stage. Maroon Town was formed in Brixton, London, by two childhood pals, fusing the spirituality, and cinematic sound of classic ska with contemporary street rap and a cheeky slice of Latin funk. The band takes its inspiration from the original rebels of Maroon Town in Jamaica who fought off the colonial invaders and set up their own independent community. Announcement of more acts to be confirmed.
