North of Watford

This event takes a sideways look at the 1960s, going beyond the stereotypes of pop and fashion to highlight some of the less familiar aspects of this much celebrated decade. Most retrospectives of the 60s have looked at events in London. Here we put the focus firmly back where it belongs – the North! Organised in collaboration with the North West Labour History Group.Speakers:Bob Dickinson on the Underground press in ManchesterChris Lee on Ewan MacColl and Bob DylanMarika Sherwood on Malcolm X’s visit to Manchester in Dec 1964Andrew Willis on the TV drama of Jim AllenTickets: £7.00 full / £5.00 concs
