We’re Nearly There!
So… We’re nearly there!
Here’s a quick update on what we’ve been up to in part 2 of our kingsxclubland sessions.
We kicked off the second phase with a training session with History Pin where we learned how to develop an exhibition collate archived footage and memorabilia.
As part of our Arts Awards, we visited the British Library to see their exhibition called Windrush: Songs in a Strange Land and got to see the first edit of the documentary!
We are now in the midst of making amendments and finalising it. Here are a few quotes from the documentary so far:
“That area of Bagley’s, The Egg and The Cross was kind of the epicentre for that club scene” – Mike Pickering
“It was just electric, the sweat… when The Cross was so small you could put your hand on the ceiling and it would just drip” – Danny Terry
We’re hard at work planning the launch and exhibition, making sure everyone’s ideas are heard and ensuring they all become a reality (within reason of course, don’t expect unicorns and a waterpark!). We are also in the process of confirming dates and venues and trust me… you don’t want to miss it, so make sure you’re following us on our socials for when we announce that date:
