Carnaby Street may be more than 300 years old, howevere its major heyday was back in the sixties...so to mark its 50Th anniversary there will be a series of events going on in and around the street on Friday 26Th of February...there will be an exhibition at number 38 for people to view a number of artifacts such as the sixties paper dress and a rare copy of The Kinks single Dedicated Follower.
In June there will be a "Summer of Love" music festival in the street to mark the anniversary, inspired by the sounds that rocked the world half a century ago...
and in September there will be a fashion show linking the era of the mini skirt to the modern fashion boutiques that line the street today.
Carnaby Street may not be what it used to be, but there is no harm in trying to bring back some of that Carnaby coolness that was a hit so many years ago...I love what they are trying to do, and its a nice cheap thing to do with friends and family!
Definitely putting these dates in my diary! nothing like a bit of cultural history celebrated in a fun way !!!
