Archives at Night: Sixties
Fri 19 May 2017, 18:30 – 22:00 BST
Culture. Revolution. Scandal...
Take a trip back to the 1960s as part of Museums at Night!
A decade that defined a generation, the sixties in Britain brought us everything from Beatlemania to miniskirts. Yet it was also a time of acute political unrest that saw the destruction of traditional structures and constraints.
Using original material from our records, come on a journey to discover some of the most fascinating aspects of the era - from the Profumo affair, to mods and rockers, and the sexual revolution.
A full evening of entertainment will include…
- Document display of original records from sixties Britain
- Talks by experts
- Entertainment including music and performance
- Vintage badge making
- Themed photo booth
- Prizes and giveaways
- Cocktail bar with mixologist
- Food to purchase
Ticket price includes one cocktail on arrival.
Sixties-inspired clothing optional but encouraged.
