Two of our finest writers on Punk in conversation

This event is sold out but will be streamed live via the British Library's Facebook page

The British Library and Faber Social are proud to present a night of conversations on punk featuring two of the most important names associated with the scene, Viv Albertine (guitarist of The Slits and author of bestselling memoir Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys) and Jon Savage (author of England’s Dreaming, deemed the ultimate book on punk).

At this special event in our Entrance Hall, both sit down to offer their unique takes on what became one of the most influential cultural movements of modern times. Hosted by Kate Mossman, arts editor of the New Statesman. The evening includes an out of hours viewing of our Punk 1976-78 exhibition plus music from Scratchy – tour DJ for the Clash – a bookstall and bar.

The doors and bar will open at 18.30. Try PUNK IPA, our exclusive guest beer from BrewDog.

Punk 1976–78 is part of Punk London, a year of events, gigs, films, talks and exhibits celebrating 40 years of punk heritage and influence in London
