It’s seventh heaven for Tom Vague and the Colville Community History Project as they celebrate the years 1957, 1967 and 1977 and the pop culture and community action that shaped not only Kensington and Chelsea but the world beyond.

On Saturday, 25 March from 3-4pm join the Colville Community History Project at North Kensington Library for a free talk and slideshow that features beatniks, Rastafarians, punks and hippies. The talk covers the effects of the 1957 Rent Act and Rachman, the 1967 summer of love and then 1977 punk-reggae party including the Sex Pistols, the Clash and Bob Marley’s Exodus.

Supported by the Colville Councillors, through City Living, Local Life the Colville Community History project produces a range of talks, exhibitions and newsletter focusing on the rich cultural and social history of the area.

Free tickets can be booked online or in person at North Kensington Library.
