Local Marcia Gigi Robinson (pic above) is organising a launch day for her book about her father, the well-known Sledge, at The Tabernacle on 23rd July. She is planning a mini circus, children’s performance, an orchestra, dancers and has already had a grant from Coleville Ward and is now looking for local sponsors from shops and local businesses for things like a fun photo booth.
Gladstone Alexander Robinson, known locally as Sledge, has been described as the first Rasta man of Notting Hill and a new book, written by his daughter Marcia Gigi Robinson , looks at his life and his legacy. Brilliantly written, using his own dialect to really give his character depth, the book is the result of two years talking to her father and recording his words, before he passed on in 2008.
If you would like to get involved with the launch party as a sponsor you could email Robinson at [email protected]
