Archives at Night: Sixties

6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

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.
