Special event

Love the 1980s? Then dig out the scrunchies and sweatbands, dust off those shoulder pads and join us as we journey back to the most day-glo of decades.

Immerse yourself in the era through gallery tours of our new exhibition, test your 80s trivia and compete for vintage prizes in our bumper quiz, try your hand at retro video games, grab a cocktail at 'Club Tropicana' and party like it's 1982 at our disco.

Who knew dwelling on the past could be so fun?
