The Friends of Margate Museum is proud to present an exhibition documenting the Whitsun weekend riots in 1964. Through sound and image the exhibition explores memory and the media, focussing on Margate’s connection to the mods and rockers cultural movement. The events of that weekend shaped a generation’s attitude to youth, bringing a spotlight on their lives more than ever before. Friends of Margate Museum are hosting their first exhibition organised entirely by the volunteers and the good will of the community.
Open September 9th-11th, 14th, 17th-18th.
Market Place, Margate Old Town.
