Limited spaces, sign up in the gallery from 15:30
Join us as musician and former vocalist of The Specials Neville Staple comes to visit the exhibition in its final week. Together with his wife Christine, Neville will be reading extracts from his autobiography, The Original Rude Boy. As witty, incisive and entertaining as the man himself the book encompasses early life in Coventry and his involvement in the Two Tone movement in the 70s and 80s. In between readings our guests will be reflecting upon the cultural, social and political landscape at the time. Neville will also be signing copies of The Original Rude Boy in the bookshop after the reading.
