BRITAIN IN THE SIXTIES
September 3rd at 18:30 to September 6th at 13:30
Change and contradiction: Swinging London never reached Hartlepool, Mary Quant had little impact on Burnley. It was Black and White Minstrels v Cathy Come Home, optimism v fear of nuclear annihilation, industrial decline v social progress, freedoms v Mary Whitehouse.
For many of us it was the decade of our youth. What does it look like now fifty years on?
