This informal event will look back over 50 years of the Nightingale, Birmingham’s first gay-bar.
Join us for a chance to look through archive posters, flyers, and photos of the Gale, and to share your memories and experiences of the iconic birmingham venue.
We are delighted to be joined on the day by Dr. Graham Beard, in conversation with SHOUT Festival Producer Adam Carver, to talk about the history of the bar from its beginnings in Camp Hill in 1969 to its current location on Kent Street and Graham’s time working as DJ for the Gale in the 70s.
Where possible please book places in advance to allow us to plan for numbers of people coming.
?This event is suitable for people ages 18+.
