 30 Years Later: Blackburn Revisited and Remastered

Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery will host together a cultural retrospective of Blackburn from the 1980s with the opening of CHRISTOPHER JOHN BALL’S EXHIBITION BLACKBURN A TOWN AND ITS PEOPLE: A RETROSPECTIVE and the launch of Bradford’s remastered album: THIRTY YEARS OF SHOUTING QUIETLY.

Bradford were the soundtrack to the time Christopher’s photographs were taken, they focus on the people of Blackburn set against a backdrop of economic and political change. He supplied the cover photo for the February 1988 Skin Storm release and also took some photos of the band on Blackburn Boulevard, one of which is included in the exhibition. There will be an opportunity to view the exhibition and Ian H and Ewan Butler of Bradford will be performing live at 4pm a selection of tracks from the original Shouting Quietly album followed by a ‘question and answers’ session with Fergal Kinney (Louder Than War).
