Sound of the Westway

Here’s an evening looking at the music history of the Westway with a talk and documentary screening followed by a photo exhibition. As the backdrop for many leading British punk, reggae and rock bands, the exhibition organised by Colville Community History Project will highlight how the geography and ethnography of the Westway influenced the careers of bands from Aswad to The Clash.

The exhibition will launch with a talk and documentary screening on Tuesday, 16th February, 6.30pm – 9.30pm, and The Sound of the Westway 1966-2016 photo history exhibition is from 16th – 28th February at Book & Kitchen, All Saints Road. colvillecom
