The cultural center Yellow Submarine also dedicated several days to British music, which was performed by Eddy Escobar and other guest artists.
Also were held panels to discuss about British music in Cuba with the participation of Guille Vilar, Juan Camacho and Joaquin Borges Triana.
The British rock photographer Jill Furmanovsky exhibited at the Fototeca de Cuba dozens of rock star photographs.
The British Music Week concludes this weekend (March 26 and 27) with a concert that includes the Cuban Djs Reitt, Kike Wolf, Wicky de Vedado and the British Auntie Flo.
