Revisit the 1970s - 'Glam and Gloom' opening soon at Goole Museum

Mon, 20 Jan 2020

A new exhibition opening soon at Goole Museum will transport visitors straight back to the 1970s.

The decade was a time of great change. There were strikes, power cuts and piles of rubbish in the streets, as well as women’s libbers and teenage punks fighting for social change.

But the seventies was also a time of frivolity and fun. Rising standards of living provided disposable income for fun fashion items. Teenagers had plenty of pocket money to spend on glam rock albums. Meanwhile, the whole family could sit down together and watch some of the greatest British TV of all time.

Curator Debbie Hardy explains: “Come and visit Goole Museum and experience the 1970s all over again. Our latest exhibition will take you through the highs and lows of a decade loved and loathed in equal measure.

“There will be many original objects on display, from space hoppers and platform shoes to games and records. If you were around in the 70s, this exhibition is a must-see. Why not bring the younger members of the family along and share your memories of a very interesting decade.”

The exhibition will run from Saturday, 25 January to Saturday, 28 March.

Goole Museum is located in Carlisle Street, Goole, DN14 5DS and is open :

Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm

Wednesday 10am to 7pm

Saturday 9am to 4pm.

The museum is closed for lunch 12 noon to 12.30pm (Wednesdays 1.30 to 2pm) and offers free admission and lift access.
