Punk: Rage and Revolution exhibition comes to Leicester
Punk returns to Leicester with the new Punk: Rage and Revolution Exhibition that celebrates the subculture whilst exploring how societal issues of the 1970s are still relevant to today’s younger generation.
Punk in the 1970s was arguably one of the most popular and recognised youth subcultures in the UK with the movement taking Britain by storm until its popularity slowly died down. Although punk was born in London from the SEX boutique by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, Leicester was a key hotspot for the culture.
