The 1960s

The 1960s: A dazzling decade

“Is It a Book That You Would Even Wish Your Wife or Your Servants to Read?” – “Society’s pound of flesh” – “He would, wouldn’t he?” – “One giant leap for mankind”. All you need is love. Eve of Destruction. They think it’s all over….it is now! Crime and punishment, groundbreaking legal judgements, challenging the Establishment, everyone’s gone to the moon, peace and love, war and revolution, sporting triumph.

Has there ever been such a rich and diverse decade? Each month, this new group will choose a particular aspect of the 1960s. It might be a particular year, it could be art and literature, science and technology, politics both domestic and international, home life and holidays, the flowering of music and fashion, food and drink, television and cinema, – or a combination of the above or something completely different. The group will decide.

We will celebrate the 60s and putting to one side our rose tinted psychedelic spectacles consider the events and the personalities which shaped the decade andbeyond. I am hoping that each session will be varied, stimulating, involving and, above all, fun.
