Event description

Description

The London Metropolitan Archives and the  National Archives invite you to join a creative workshop with a focus on the targeting and surveillance of LGBTQ+ clubs and meeting places by the government.

This event runs as part of the national Being Human Festival and will combine an exploration of secret police and government files, and newly recorded oral testimony to shed light on LGBTQ+ venues past and present.

The theme of the festival is Hope and Fear. Join us in debates around queer spaces and the surveillance of the queer community historically. Use archival material to highlight contemporary discussions around the threat to LGBT venues.

This event is aimed at young people aged 16-25

FREE Booking essential (refreshments provided)
