TO STAMFORD HILL
TRAVEL BACK IN TIME TO THE BIRTH
OF THE SWINGING SIXTIES
This walk has been 60 years in the making.
On this tour we journey from Stoke Newington up to Stamford Hill looking at both areas as they are today but also taking you back to the early sixties when London was on the verge of becoming the centre of youth culture and fashion all over the world. We are going to do this by tracing the early years of one of the greatest pop singers of the seventies and how he was part of a group of teenagers who revolutionised fashion and how 'the boys from the hill' became the first mods Visiting the sites of places where these kids met up, talked about music, clothes and exchanged ideas and in doing so set the future in motion. We see and talk about how both areas have changed so much in recent decades yes much of the past lives on if you know where to look.Throw into the mix a story that might have come from Memphis rather than Stamford hill as well as some personal memories we have a tour that will be more than interesting for all age groups.
