About the Event
An ESRC Festival of Social Science 2023 event
Join us for a curated performance, bringing together music, photography, spoken word and interviews to showcase how the Two-Tone movement and Ska music offered alternative cultural opportunities for British youth outside our cities, particularly in rural locations like Dorset.
With live music provided by a Ska band, as well as interviews with those who were part of the movement locally, we’ll explore the development of youth culture and its role in affecting social change - bringing this important chapter in British social history to life.
