1964 was when the swinging sixties really began. Youth culture dominated the media and the spirit of optimism was ubiquitous. Yet there were also darker forces at work which proved to be equally significant for the future. 'Changing Times' presents a clear and detailed picture of the many personalities, events and trends that made this year so remarkable. The escalation of the Vietnam war, elections in the USA and the UK, the struggle for civil rights and the imprisonment of Nelson Mandela are just some of the topics covered.
Yet, Steven Millards book is more than just a chronological survey. Steve makes the connection between music and politics and links them to the wider world of art, film, fashion, sport, science and technology.
In this rare opportunity to meet the acclaimed author, Steven will be taking you through excerpts of his book and invite the audience into discussion and questions.
This event is completely free but places will be limited, so best to reserve your place soon.
