|Seville Emancipation Jubilee|
Seville Great House is a wattle-and-daub structure that was built in 1745 by the British.
Besides being a permanent showcase of native island artifacts, it hosts the Emancipation Jubilee, an event which combines Jamaican folk forms with a celebration of African ancestry, and Jamaica's contribution to Emancipation.
Exhibits include Jamaican traditional cuisine and craft, and the Seville Heritage Park is transformed for the occasion into a 19th-century setting, filled with an atmosphere of celebration and festivity.
The annual Emancipation Jubilee is a major national celebration organised by the JNHT in honour of the African ancestors and their contribution towards the free society that Jamaicans enjoy.
The event which includes an all-night vigil, featuring the performance of traditional rites, will begin at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 31, and will continue through to Emancipation Day on August 1.
