The Jamaican Tourist Board, in association with Barrhead Travel and the 29 Glasgow private club have joined forces to bring Jamaica House 2014 to Glasgow ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

Levi helped declare Jamaica House 2014 at 29 Glasgow officially open with a series of cookery demonstrations and rum tasting sessions.

Barrhead Travel has declared Jamaica House a must visit summer destination as the Royal Exchange Square venue transforms itself into 'mini Jamaica'. Jamaican flag bunting will adorn the streets, while reggae rhythms float through 29's clubs, bars and restaurants, where delicious Jamaican jerk chicken, rum cocktails and Red Stripe beer are firmly on the menu.

Jamaica House opened for the first time at the London 2012 Olympics in Jamaica's 50th anniversary year of Independence.
