As part of the year long punk.london festival celebrating forty years of punk there will be a debate at the museum of London this Friday, November 18. Chaired by 'punk professor', writer, educator, broadcaster and musician Vivien Goldman, the debate will bring together opposing ideas and arguments about punk, its journey over forty years and what it means for the future.
The panelists will include model, actress and iconic punk Jordan, former Buzzcocks’ manager, Richard Boon, The Guardian’s Kate Hutchinson, and musician and writer/performer, Jen Calleja.
Joe Corré, the son of the late Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren and fashion designer Vivienne Westwood will also be in attendance and plans to burn his entire collection of punk memorabilia, estimated to be worth £5m.
“In true punk spirit, there will be two open mics during the debate so that the audience can interrupt and participate throughout.” and attendees will also have the chance to view the museum’s latest exhibition, Punks which runs until January 15.
Tickets to the live debate are available here
