January – Special Screenings

‘Forever Young’ with Q&A with Guy Martin

Join us for an extraordinary archive film, featuring a range of local news and documentaries shot throughout our region, celebrating the diversity of British youth culture from the early 1970s through to the mid-1980s.

About the performance:

An extraordinary range of local news and documentary clips from the Anglia Television collection at the East Anglian Film Archive, Forever Young celebrates the diversity of British youth cultures from the early 1970s through to the mid-1980s. Seen through the eyes of young people in our region, these films offer a unique history of the social movements that transformed British society and how they connected to the trailblazing music and (sometimes outlandish!) fashions of the times. 

Tickets are ‘pay what you can’ but a suggested ticket is £5.
