Event description

Description

Join us for drinks and to celebrate the midway point in our project 'Sweet Harmony: Radio, Rave & Waltham Forest, 1989-1994' which explores the history of pirate radio and the rave scene's impact in Waltham Forest.

Bring friends; plus if you have flyers, photos and memories to share from that period and area, we'd love to include them in our project archive - do bring them along.

We are screening the film:

'Legacy in the Dust: The Four Aces Story' a film by Winstan Whitter

A rare chance to see this film which tells the story of the Four Aces Club in Dalston ‘the London equivalent of the New York Apollo’, charting the rise of black British music and the first legal indoor rave venue (Labrynth) and the demise of heritage at the expense of gentrification.

Featuring Don Letts, Bunny ‘Striker Lee’, Ariane Forster, Junior Giscombe, Dennis Alcapone, Lloyd Coxsone, Tippa Ire, The Prodigy, Tessa Pollitt, Dennis Bovell, Billy Bunter, Trevor Saxon, Newton Dunbar, DJ Slipmat and others.

Leyton Technical takes reservations, so if you would like to reserve a table, you can do so via their website. Their contact details are 020 8558 4759 or leytontechnical@anticlondon.com. There is also step-free access.
