Time Shift – 1960: The Year Of The North – The Sixties, according to popular belief, was the decade that swung. But the Sixties began with a great roar that emanated not from swinging London, but from the north of England.
Time Shift explores how, in books, film, television and music, new voices were making themselves heard that would wake Britain from its post-war slumber. The likes of Alan Sillitoe, Shelagh Delaney, Tony Warren and the Beatles, began a process that would make the northern voice central to the decade that followed.
Time Shift – 1960: The Year Of The North is part of a season celebrating the culture, history, life and architecture of northern England.
