Archives at Night: Sixties

Things to do, Late openings

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Put on a Twiggy dress and get to know your mods from your rockers for the National Archives Sixties revival. Documents on the trial of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, the strike of the women workers of Ford Dagenham and the Kray twins arrest will be dusted off and put on public display. Landmark sixties moments will be recreated by live performers throughout the night, and you can hear talks on the key news stories of the decade, like the Profumo Affair sex scandal.

Once you've absorbed all that post-war history, you can get involved with some vintage badge making or do a few rounds in the themed photobooth.
