Museum of London - 40 years of punk and October events

Image result for Museum of London
What's on in October?
The Museum of London's celebration of 40 years of punk closes with our new display Punks. In a move away from the big names associated with the movement, the museum invited everyday punks to share their tales and lend or donate items, from handmade mixtape sleeves and DIY fanzines to the radical clothes sold on King's Road.

A series of events will accompany the Punks display including a walk, Punk 40, a life drawing workshop, dRAW live and a talk, Punk: wanted dead or alive.

Also this month, gamers can look forward to the second evening of our video games series atCities in virtual worlds, we have regular tours of the ancient Roman baths hidden beneath the City, and a host of events for families at half term.
