Brunch Against Bigotry

Friday 17 June 2016, 12.00pm to 1.00pm


Join us on the opening day of our new exhibition Rock Against Racism for an informal discussion over brunch with photographer Syd Shelton.



Syd Shelton’s images capture a pivotal moment in British politics and culture, fashion and music. Rock Against Racism (1976 to 1981) was a groundbreaking movement formed by musicians and political activists to fight racism through music. 



Syd will discuss his experience of capturing the politics and people that defined the movement, and share more about the social and cultural context of the time.

Free event, no booking required
