An event celebrating musical memories from the 60s, 70s and 80s is coming to the Wisbech Horsefair next week.

‘Talkin Bout My Generation’ is a one day event held on Thusday March 29 from 10am to 3pm.

Organisers will provide clothes and accessories from the eras to dress up in.

It is funded by the Heritage Lottery and run by Hilary Cox Condron and pop culture activist Jess Johnston.

Hilary and Jess will be at the Horsefair Shopping Centre, at the side of Boots, gathering memories and stories of the music scene in Wisbech.

Hilary said: “Come along and be prepared to have your memories tickled and spin a few singles in our retro music booths.

“Dress up in the clothes and accessories of the era, share photos and stories and even go back to the day with some classic scents and tastes.

“Old Spice and Spacedust, anyone - from buying your first record at Clarke’s to gigs at the Corn Exchange and playing in local bands – we would love to hear your stories and see your photos.”
