SPECIAL EVENT: Discover how photography has recorded the transformation of music, the wave of subcultures and the shifting disposition of a nation, with a special all day event - for everyone.

Explore the themes captured by photographers who have recorded the black experience and the musical backdrop that has captured moments in living history, with Gladdy Wax, Tighten Up Crew DJs, photographer Ed Otchere, former Kiss FM masters Gordon Mac, Lindsay Wesker, Dave VJ and one of the UK's most respected DJs and social commentators Norman Jay MBE.
