Relieve the halcyon days of the darker side of the 1977 Silver Jubilee at the British Library’s new free exhibition celebrating 40 years of a cultural phenomenon which is enduring as strong as ever, Punk 1976-78.
Starting with the impact of the Sex Pistols in 1976, the exhibition explores punk’s early days in the capital and reveals how its remarkable influence spread across music, fashion, print and graphic styles nationwide.
Showcasing a range of fanzines, flyers, recordings and record sleeves from the British Library’s collections alongside rare material from the archives held at Liverpool John Moores University, including items from England’s Dreaming: The Jon Savage Archive, it celebrates the enduring influence of punk as a radical musical, artistic and political movement.
The exhibition is being hosted in the Library’s main entrance hall and runs until October 2nd. For further details visit the British Library site.
