Friday 28/03/2014 Exhibition continues, then from 7pm Magpie Cinema present High on Hope, a film about the Blackburn rave scene with Q&A from director Piers Sanderson plus music from DJs Russ and Waka, plus home cooked food from Mr Foulgers kitchen.
Commemorating the 20th anniversary of acid house this documentary feature film tells the story of the infamous 'Hardcore Uproar’ warehouse parties in Blackburn 1989-91.
From just 50 friends in a backstreet workshop these parties grew to over 10,000 people dancing in cavernous warehouses across the north west every week.
Their trajectory mirrored what was happening nationally as acid house went from an underground scene to The mass youth cult of the end of the 20th century. With q&a after the film with director Piers Sanderson.
